This hidden gem tucked inside the Mandarin Oriental sparkles with the elegant Asian-influenced cuisine of chef de cuisine Joel Huff. A Southern California native, Huff’s culinary sensibilities have been influenced by time spent in Thailand and Australia, where he met his mentor Nori Sugi and learned the intricacies of Japanese cuisine and technique. At Silks, Huff seamlessly marries his knowledge of Eastern and Western flavors in whimsical dishes that have a firm foundation in classical technique.
