Alon Shaya is executive chef and partner of Domenica and its more casual sister restaurant, Pizza Domenica.
As a boy in Philadelphia, Alon Shaya spent most of his time in the kitchen with his mother and grandmother, which instilled in him a passion for cooking. After training at the Culinary Institute of America, Alon interned at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas - too young to gamble, but ready to take on the casino kitchens. In 2001, Alon met Octavio Mantilla, co-owner of Besh Restaurant Group, who lured him to New Orleans.
As Chef de Cuisine at Besh Steak in Harrah's Casino, New Orleans, Alon worked closely with Chef John Besh.
In 2009 Alon and Chef Besh forged a partnership to open Domenica, a family-oriented, authentic Italian restaurant in New Orleans Historic Roosevelt Hotel.
In 2012, 2013 and 2014, Alon was a finalist for a coveted James Beard Foundation Award, in the "Best Chef - South" category. In 2010, Esquire Magazine named Shaya one of four Chefs to Watch, and Shaya was named "Chef of the Year" by Eater New Orleans. New Orleans Magazine honored him as "Chef of the Year" in 2012.
In preparation to open Domenica, Alon spent a year cooking and traveling in Italy, learning from mentors about pizza and salumi. He has recently traveled to Israel on to prepare meals for groups there alongside Chef Michael Solomonov of Philadelphia, a longtime friend.
Alon opened Pizza Domenica, a casual spin-off of Domenica Restaurant, in uptown New Orleans in the spring of 2014. | Board of Directors, 23 Dec 2014 [cached]
