Bruce Naftaly, Chef/Owner, Le Gourmond, Ballard, WA

In Fall 1985, Naftaly opened Le Gourmond in the Seattle area, and brought his own cooking style to the task. A musician before he turned his attention to food, he combines artistic sensitivities with the practical aspects of professionally running a restaurant kitchen. He previously served as sous chef and chef at Alexis Restaurant when it opened in the Alexis Hotel.
