On Friday, March 4, 2011 Ingrid’s Bistro Café announced that Chef Francois Sarrafi is no longer with Ingrid’s/Bistro Café, the fine Mediterranean Cuisine restaurant.
Chef Francois was with Ingrid’s Café, also known as Ingrid’s Bistro, for only two months. He was hired after answering an advertisement posted on kijiji-Los Angeles and his last day was January 29, 2011. As always, firm owners, management and the public relations firm wish him the best of luck.
Many loyal fans may wonder what will happen to the exclusive, fantastic, exquisite food at Ingrid’s Café. Well, sometimes the owner must wear multiple hats and that’s the response we have received from Ingrid. She has worn two hats in the past, as the owner and chef. Because of the current situation, the owner/chef Ingrid will take over again and will give you, the customer, some of the best exclusive flavor, taste and love to enjoy.
Per Ms. Bedrosian, Chef Francois’ departure will not in any way or shape affect restaurant operations because the menu was created by Ingrid and there will be even more exciting items introduced very soon.
“Our restaurant currently serves authentic and gourmet Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of French in a casual bistro setting. Our carefully crafted menu, extensive wine selection, impeccable service, and elegant, yet cozy, atmosphere brings the best of Euro/Mediterranean to your dining experience. Our constantly-evolving menu is based on the freshest and organic ingredients available, yet we make sure to offer the favorites that our patrons have been enjoying for years.” Said Ingrid Bedrosian, Owner/Chef.
As of now, Ingrid’s Café/Bistro Owner may consider hiring a new chef, but hopes to find someone like herself who truly enjoys cooking and can introduce new elegant dishes. Until then, she will take over for you to continue enjoying the best of Ingrids/Bistro Café Beverly Hills.
