Born in Toronto, Canada, Jordan Andino began his foray into the culinary world at the young age of 9. After moving to Manhattan Beach, CA, he traded his surfboard to work in fine dining kitchens with his father, and later attended Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration. Andino has gained experience working at acclaimed restaurants including The French Laundry and Jean Georges.
Jordan has rapidly gained clout as one of the freshest, most notable faces in New York City’s culinary world. His hospitality skills have been an integral part of the opening of his Flip Sigi (formerly 2nd City USA) restaurants. Located in both the West Village and Upper East Side, these fast casual Filipino Taquerias resonate his vibrant and vivacious personality via graffiti murals, eclectic music, skateboard-adorned walls, and clean unique flavors. His successes were quickly noticed, leading to countless recognitions, appearances, features, and brand collaborations.
Jordan's dynamic demeanor has caught the attention of numerous networks and icons alike. This fall, he debuted as the host of Food Network/Cooking Channel's new show "Late Nite Eats". In addition to launching a show, Jordan has made chef, contestant, judge, and guest appearances on a variety of popular shows including Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons, Chopped, Rachael Ray, The Today Show, Beat Bobby Flay, Worst Cooks In America, Cooks vs. Cons, DIRECTV’s Fantasy Zone, and Recipe for Deception.
