Le Mediterranean Bistro

Growing up in Casablanca exposed Driss Zahidi to French, Mediterranean, Italian, and Spanish cuisines. As the oldest of five children, he regularly helped his mother in the kitchen, and began working as a line cook in high school. Considering his upbringing, it would seem that Driss's natural next step would be to become the award-winning chef and restaurateur that he is today. But the reality is a bit more unexpected.

After earning a master's in physics, Driss spent a year as a chemical engineer in France, chemically engineering things in a place of chemical engineering. Cooking remained his passion, though, so when he'd clock out at the lab, he'd head to local restaurants to hone his chops making meals. He then decided to abandon his engineering career to court the food world full time, and eventually came to America where he co-founded two critically acclaimed restaurants before opening Le Mediterranean Bistro.

Driss has still never set food in a culinary school, but that doesn't change the fact that he is applauded for his deft take on upscale French cuisine. After one look at his artful, sculptural dishes and a taste of his pistachio-crusted lamb or Moroccan Pastilla, it's clear that Driss's background in chemistry has served his cooking just fine.
