About The Chef
Chef Habib El Jacifi originates from the vibrant city of Casablanca in Morocco. Growing up in such a diverse culinary city Chef Jacifi was exposed to French, Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. This inspired Chef Jacifi to take classic Italian recipes and transform them into new masterpieces with French and Mediterranean influences.
The Chef was classically trained by the late Chef Pietro Bartolozzi of Lí Ottavo Ristorante in San Francisco. After helping to start several Bay Area restaurants like Luna Ristorante in 2000 and Nibblers Eatery and Wine Bar in 2005, the Chef was inspired to start one for himself. The Chef uses products from local and regional farmers and ranchers who use sustainable farm practices.
