Omri Aflalo, Executive Chef, BOURBON STEAK San Francisco
Omri Aflalo’s passion for the culinary arts lies in its hands - on artistry. His culinary journey started at a young age with family outings to restaurants like Ma Maison, French Laundry and Aqua, dining on traditional Moroccan foods and a family motto of “eat, eat, eat!” Aflalo quickly realized through a part–time job that cooking and culinary school was where he wanted to be.
With support from the chef he was working for, Aflalo moved from San Francisco to New York to attend the Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 2002. After graduation Aflalo continued his formal education, training at some of the best Michelin–starred restaurants throughout Europe. Back in the States, Aflalo’s career included positions with Aqua under Michael Mina, Restaurant Gary Danko, and Michel Richard at Citronelle and Central Restaurant before joining BOURBON STEAK San Francisco.
