New California Bistro

Chef Lori

This graduate of Le Cordon Bleu serves next-level adaptations of California cuisine for any occasion.

Dining in California can be tricky: one minute you’re doing California casual drinks by the pool, the next, you’re hosting a formal sit-down for 12.

That’s why Chef Lori’s “New California Bistro” style is so fantastic. Versatile and exciting, her menus pay tribute to the Golden State’s traditions no matter what the occasion, using fresh, local ingredients. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, Chef Lori also completed a stint for famed California-based restauranteur Wolfgang Puck’s catering company and gets rave reviews from her clients.
