Tanya has been in the restaurant business since she was 14 years old, and became a restaurateur when she opened her first Italian restaurant, Dolcetto Trattoria, in Washington D.C. at the age of 17. After three successful years, Tanya moved to Las Vegas to help open Chef Jean-Louis Palladin’s new restaurant. “Jean-Louis would always invite me to work events around the world which exposed me to many different personalities in the industry”, and ultimately led her to launch a career in restaurant event marketing and management in 2005. She worked for notable Chefs Roberto Donna and Jean-Louis Palladin before joining Fabrizio Aielli’s team in August of 2012, as general manager. Tanya oversees the day-to-day operations and management responsibilities for Sea Salt Restaurant.

Tanya is also dedicated to our community; she volunteers her to time to Boys & Girls Club; Share Our Strength; Three Square; Meals on Wheels; Opportunity Village; Chefs for Kids and March of Dimes.
