Levon Wallace | Executive Chef
Gray & Dudley executive chef Levon Wallace’s thoughtful approach combines technique, creativity and aesthetics to create menus that reflect his West Coast roots. A California native and graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Wallace apprenticed at some of the city’s finest restaurants before becoming Chef de Cuisine at the Ojai Valley Inn, receiving both AAA Four and Five Diamond Restaurant Awards.
