Sylva Senat from "Top Chef" is one of the chefs competing in season 14 of the Bravo reality cooking competition. She is the executive chef and culinary consultant at Tashan Restaurant and Lounge in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A French-speaking Haitian native with Manhattan fine-dining sensibilities, Sylva Senat is a kitchen-trained chef who learned from some of the absolute best. His culinary journey has taken him from The Sign of the Dove to Aquavit NY to then Jean Georges' restaurant at Trump Hotel where he eventually became Jean-Georges' sous chef. Senat moved on to become co-chef de cuisine at 66 Leonard Street and Mercer Kitchen.

Senat has also worked overseas in France and San Juan, and upon his return home, he was immediately snatched up by Buddakan in Philadelphia. After two years there, Sylva moved on to become the executive chef of Tashan Restaurant and Lounge, a new modern Indian restaurant. Senat is a cornerstone of the success at Tashan and is currently consulting with other restaurants in Philadelphia. He also mentors young students from a program called Career Through Culinary Arts, where he also holds a seat on the alumni board.
