sous chef / avid hugger
The only thing bigger than Elliot Portera's hands is his heart. He's an amazing cook and an emotional rock when he's on the line. Except for that one time he got back from Vegas. We're not sure what happened there, but he will still shudder if you mention his "episode." Needless to say, Elliot is no longer allowed to go to Las Vegas.
But that's for the best because we'd be lost without him holding down the line and being there to give hugs and fist bumps to all the staff everyday. Elliot has worked every station in the kitchen and has become an amazing mentor to all of the younger cooks. All of that goodness likely sprouted from his first job slicing deli meat at Costco.
