Geoffrey Zakarian

A restaurateur and chef with almost three decades of experience, Geoffrey Zakarian holds responsibilities as Chef and Partner with The National and The Lambs Club in New York and Tudor House in Miami Beach. At The Lambs Club at The Chatwal Hotel, Geoffrey Zakarian presents a luxury bar-and-grill setting for contemporary American cuisine. Located at The Benjamin hotel, The National offers an American take on Europe’s grand cafes, while Tudor House creates a neighborhood bistro feel at an art deco hotel on Miami’s South Beach.

Geoffrey Zakarian gained his first restaurant position at New York’s Le Cirque in 1982. From cooking soufflés, he worked his way into the role of Chef de Cuisine. In 1988, Zakarian accepted a post as Executive Chef of Forty Four at the Royalton, creating a chic hotel restaurant emblematic of the late 1980s. In 1995, he transitioned to Miami, establishing Blue Door at the Delano hotel as a top beachfront destination. Two years later, Geoffrey Zakarian became Executive Chef with the successful New York venue Aretsky’s Patroon.

Geoffrey Zakarian emerged as a restaurant owner in 2001 when he opened Town. Like Patroon before, the upscale eatery gained three The New York Times stars. He followed this with Country in 2005, which quickly earned a Michelin star. His experience as a restaurateur led to the publication of his well-received cookbook, Geoffrey Zakarian's Town/Country: 150 Recipes for Life Around the Table (Clarkson Potter, 2006), an Editor’s Choice of The New York Times Book Review. Zakarian next accepted responsibilities as Hospitality Consultant at The Water Club at Borgata in Atlantic City.

Geoffrey Zakarian has taken a number of sabbaticals over the decades, assisting at some of Europe’s most noted establishments. Zakarian has honed culinary skills at London’s The Dorchester, Lyon’s Pierre Orsay, and Paris’ Au Quai des Ormes and L’Arpège. His intimate knowledge of classical French cooking, as well as international hospitality design, informs his current ventures. Reflecting the increased popularity of television culinary programming, he appears regularly on a number of Television Food Network shows, including Chopped and The Next Iron Chef.
