Mourad Lahlou has two life stories. Born and raised in a large extended family in the ancient Medina of Marrakesh, he came to the United States when he was 20 to study economics at San Francisco State University. Missing his native cuisine, he taught himself how to recreate his favorite Moroccan dishes with local ingredients and his own inventive techniques. Before long, he had embarked on a journey that would lead to a career as a pioneering Moroccan-American chef.
As chef/owner of Aziza in San Francisco, he has been recognized as one the most dynamic and individual chefs in the Bay Area. His strikingly modern reinventions of traditional Moroccan dishes are all about showcasing the great flavors of his native cuisine in ways that harmonize with the fresh, local, artisanal ingredients of Northern California.
Driven by a desire to strip away the clichés and misconceptions about Moroccan food and celebrate its true potential for fine dining, moourad's cooking is both cerebral and sensual - a rare blend of stunning presentation and meticulous attention to detail with soulful and often surprising flavor combinations.
Mourad opened his first restaurant, Kasbah, in San Rafael, California in 1996, and was recognized as a Rising Star Chef by the San Francisco Chronicle in 1998. In 2001, looking to take his cooking in a more modern and sophisticated direction, he closed Kasbah and opened Aziza in San Francisco's Richmond district.
...
In 2008, Mourad was named a Rising Star Chef by StarChefs, and in 2009 the Chronicle raised Aziza's rating to three and a half stars. That same year, Zagat named Aziza one of the top 10 Bay Area restaurants of the decade, and Lahlou won Food Network's Iron Chef America by a record-breaking margin. And in 2010, Aziza became the first Moroccan restaurant to receive a Michelin Star.
Chef Lahlou's much-anticipated cookbook will be published by Artisan Books in fall, 2011.

The first thing you see when arriving at Mourad Lahlou's forthcoming downtown San Francisco restaurant is a massive, 10-foot-tall tree root, set on its side and essentially framed in steel by architect Olle Lundberg.
...
Lahlou and Lundberg were taken aback at the manicured shape when it arrived, but they quickly realized that the cropped block of wood was a beautiful piece of art in its own right.
...
Ensconced at the entrance, it acts as a metaphor for Lahlou's culinary evolution from his native, rustic Moroccan cuisine to the modern, refined Moroccan-California cooking that has earned him a Michelin star at his Outer Richmond destination, Aziza (5800 Geary Blvd.).
Lahlou has been working on his large new restaurant in the historic and beautifully restored 140 New Montgomery building for 2½ years. It is nearly complete, and scheduled to open early next month.
The restaurant's design is modeled after the blueprint of a Moroccan home, Lahlou explains.
"When you go to a home in Morocco, you don't see the whole house from the front door," Lahlou says.
...
We're shooting for the stars," says Lahlou.
"It's basically Moroccan food that is modern but has a huge, huge California aspect to it. But it will have its roots in Morocco, like everything we do: preserved lemons, ras (el hanout), b'steeya, couscous."
Aziza will remain open and operate as usual. Lahlou has just hired a new chef de cuisine in Orlando Pagan, formerly of Ame, Spruce and Silks.
...
One key part of the new restaurant that Lahlou doesn't have figured out yet? The name.
