Chef Lionel is the Chef de Cuisine at SALT, Juneau’s fine-dining restaurant. He has been working with food since as long as he can remember, spending much of his childhood working in his aunt and uncle’s restaurant.

Chef Lionel continued to hone his craft by attending the prestigious Cordon Blue cooking school. Back in Juneau, he has become well-known for preparing luxurious meals paired with perfect wines and uniquely decadent desserts. His team is made up of like-minded professionals whose goal is to entice the taste buds through an elegant dining experience.
