About Chef Julian Serrano

Award-­winning Chef Julian Serrano, a two-time winner of the Prestigious James Beard Foundation Award (Best Chef Pacific 1998 & Best Chef Southwest 2002), and the Executive Chef of Picasso at Bellagio, now turns a discerning eye to the cuisine of his Spanish heritage as his eponymous restaurant, Julian Serrano at ARIA.

A native of Madrid, Serrano is a graduate of the Escuela Gastronomie P.P.O. hotel management school in Marbella, Spain, and has pursued his affinity for French cuisine in some of Europe’s most celebrated kitchens. He has spent time at Lucas-­Carlton in Paris, Hotel de France in Auch, France, Chez Max in Zurich and L’Aubergine in Munich.

Following brief positions in Miami and Nashville, Serrano moved to San Francisco, where in 1983 he helped open Masa’s restaurant under the personal tutelage of the restaurant’s renowned founding chef, Masataka Kobayashi.

In 1998, Serrano brought his memorable Mediterranean-­French cooking to Bellagio in Las Vegas as Executive Chef of Picasso. The Michelin two-star restaurant has won the AAA Five Diamond Award every year since 2002 and its wine list has received the coveted Grand Award from Wine Spectator magazine.
