Our Executive Chef Is a Big Deal
-
Josh Oakley got his start as a pantry cook at Christopher's and Crush Lounge in Scottsdale, Arizona. His time there cultivated a lifelong passion for good dining, which soon brought him to The Pullman in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, where he was promoted to sous chef after just one year. 
-
In 2015, Josh moved to Agde, France, to join the Gastonomicom Cooking School, where he studied under two Michelin star restaurant chefs. To say that the experience was enlightening would be a major understatement. 
-
Today, Josh brings that depth of passion, experience, and craft to the kitchen at Avelina. You can taste the results of Josh's journey in every dish on our storied menu, from the veal bolognese to the Olathe sweet corn risotto. 
-
Fearless food. Life-changing cocktails.
We are Avelina.
