ABOUT CHEF KEN FRANK
Acclaimed Chef Ken Frank is Executive Chef and Owner of Napa Valley’s Michelin-starred La Toque Restaurant. His love of French cooking began when his father moved the family from California to Yvoire, France.
He first achieved national acclaim at age 21 at the Los Angeles restaurant La Guillotine. He opened the first La Toque on Sunset Strip in 1979 and sold it in 1995. The second La Toque was opened in Rutherford, California at the Rancho Caymus Inn in 1998. It was awarded a
Michelin Star in 2007, the first year the organization published a San Francisco Bay Area guide.
In 2008, he moved the restaurant to The Westin Verasa Napa and it earned a three-star review from the San Francisco Chronicle’s Michael Bauer. In October 2009, La Toque was honored again with a Michelin Star, which it still retains today.
