Chef James Trees
Born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, James Trees’ culinary career began as a teenager at the Mirage Hotel & Casino on the Strip prior to attending the Culinary Institute of America, then rising through the ranks under chefs including Michael Mina, Bradley Ogden, Eric Ripert, Heston Blumenthal, Akasha Richmond and Ray Garcia. He opened multiple restaurants across the US as Corporate Sous Chef for the Mina Group, and spent several seasons behind the scenes with Gordon Ramsay on Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen. Esther’s Kitchen in the Downtown Las Vegas Arts District is his first independent restaurant. Having succeeded with that beyond all expectations (even his own!), Chef Trees has followed that with two more concepts, the counter-in-the-sky 108 Eats at The Strat, and Ada’s, a place for pizza, ice cream and a cocktail in Tivoli Village.
