Redzikowski’s passion for Asian cuisine was sparked early on by his travels to Southeast Asia. On his return to the United States, he secured a position at Nobu Matsuhisa in Aspen, Colorado, and later served as sous chef at Joel Robuchon at the Mansion, and executive sous chef of Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
