Most recently he was the executive sushi chef at Aah Loi Thai & Sushi in Jupiter, Florida. 

During his time in the Southeast, he was also executive sushi chef at Sakura Japanese Restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens, Saito’s in West Palm Beach and Mark’s Restaurants in South Florida. He also was owner at Kubo Asiatic Cuisine in North Palm Beach and consultant chef at Dirty Martini in Palm Beach Gardens and Kapow Noodle Bar in Boca Raton.

Back in Vegas, chef Villacrusis brings his flair for sushi to Andiron Steak & Sea. He also plans to open his very own restaurant focusing on Asiatic cuisine in late 2016 or early 2017.
