Royden Ellamar, a Hilo Hawaii native, learned to respect nature at a young age. He grew up farming, fishing and hunting in the Big Island’s pristine terrain with his family and from them, he gained a keen understanding of the process food goes through while traveling from the farm to the table. This is knowledge he has relied on throughout his career and in the kitchen at Sensi.
“It is very important to me to have relationships with the people that grow our food,” Ellamar said. “I like knowing that the food we present to our guests is the best quality and meets the exceptionally high standards people expect from Bellagio restaurants.”
