Congratulations to Mission Dolores Academy Top Chef Mourad Lahlou
Congratulations to chef and restaurateur Mourad Lahlou for a successful opening of his new restaurant Mourad! The Mission Dolores Academy family has been very fortunate to have the support of Lahlou as one of our Top Chefs for the school’s annual benefit luncheon in 2013 and 2014.
Located at 140 New Montgomery Street in the newly renovated Pacific Telephone Building, the new restaurant is already garnering praises from foodies and local media including the San Francisco Chronicle and sfgate.com. As described on the website at mouradsf.com, "Mourad takes the culinary resources of the Bay Area and views them through a Moroccan lens. Influenced by traditional ingredients and flavors yet presented with modern technique, a new cuisine has been born which is simultaneously classic and contemporary."
Lahlou’s highly acclaimed, Michelin-starred Aziza has long been considered a go-to destination for his modern re-inventions of traditional Moroccan dishes. We look forward to seeing continued success with the new Mourad in the big, bright space in the Financial District!
