Born in Colombia to Japanese and Colombian parents, Chef Will Ono’s exposure to an incredible array of diverse foods at an early age sparked his lifelong interest in cooking tradition-infused menus at the highest levels.
After attending Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School, Chef Will began his culinary career in Palm Beach, Florida over a decade ago as Chef de Partie at Café Boulud. He has continued his quest for culinary knowledge by working for and learning from some of the best chefs and restaurants in the world. These include Azurmendi in Basque Country, Spain (3 Michelin Stars), Noma and Relae in Copenhagen, Denmark (The World’s 50 Best Restaurant List), and renowned New York City restaurants, The Mark by Jean Georges and The Clocktower by Jason Atherton.
Will currently spends his time working as a private chef for high net-worth families in Manhattan.
