Chef Anthony Andreason came from humble beginnings. Always knocking down obstacles, and overcoming things beyond his control, the culinary world was no different. With no formal culinary education all Anthony needed was his “I’ll make it happen” attitude, and he took his native lands of Las Vegas by storm! Using his work ethic, adaptability, and natural leadership skills, his culinary story began.
Starting as a dish washer at Herbs and Rye, Anthony navigated his way
into and through each station in the kitchen. After honing in on his
broils skills, and ability to manage a continuous flow of fine dining
tickets, Anthony stepped into his new position as executive chef. Not
long after Anthony accepted the executive chef position of Bunkhouse, a
contemporary new music venue, serving up a twist on bar food. Starting
to really gain a passion and enjoyment in the kitchen Anthony had
a yearning to take his career even further. Using this momentum he
branched out into yet another lane of food, and opened Itsy Bitsy as
their executive chef also. This ramen and whiskey restaurant served as
an opportunity to learn to develop flavors, and that is where he
really began to tell his story through food. With his desire to step
even further out of his comfort zone, Anthony’s story continued and
he ventured into the art of pizza.
You have been able to find Chef Andreason for the last three years at
Pizza Rock GVR, Downtown Pizza Rock, or one of the Slice Houses in Las
Vegas. The culture that Anthony effortlessly establishes in kitchen also
extends as far Sacramento and San Francisco. His current position as
executive chef of Pizza Rock, and working under the 13 time world
renowned pizza champion, Tony Gemignani, reflects his determination to
remain unstoppable, with proof that there is so much more to be written.
