Jeff and Monika Sudakov are originally from Southern California. The couple lived in Las Vegas while Monika was pursuing her Master’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology at UNLV. They bought the Chestnut Street Inn in 2005, bringing with them their experience in hospitality and knowledge of food and culture. Both have backgrounds in theater, Jeff having been a musical theater performer for years and Monika a ballet dancer. Both have also travelled extensively, and you can see some of the souvenirs they have collected over the years displayed throughout the common areas of the inn.
