About Chef Eliott Harris
Chef Harris is a St. Louis native and experienced sushi chef who has worked in kitchens from San Francisco to the Dominican Republic. He deems himself a purist, focusing primarily on the “straightforward, simple flavors of quality fresh fish.” In his 20 years of sushi bar experience, Harris launched Chop Shop STL, a popular sushi food truck where he was able to hone his craft on the streets of St. Louis. He also served as a sushi consultant for Central Table Food Hall.
This is not his first rodeo in one of Brad Beracha’s kitchens, as he previously served as Executive Chef in now-closed Miso on Meramec. He was especially excited to join BaiKu’s team known for their passion and expert technique, and has brought a new level of flavor and freshness to the menu.
One of Eliott’s new creations is his chilled poke bowl made up of ahi tuna dressed in a spicy miso sauce with cucumber, Maui onion, wakame, shrimp chips and kimichi furikake. He will also feature daily fresh fish presented in nigiri or sashimi styles along with rotating specials.
