As a child, James Syhabout was surrounded by food and cooking, partly because his mother was a cook in local Thai restaurants. Today, he is chef and owner of a Michelin star-rated restaurant on Piedmont Avenue (Commis) and another (Hawker Fare) in the very restaurant space his mother once worked. His approach to cooking is artistic and personal. He considers his restaurant his home. You'll feel welcome there, as you will in Oakland. http://OaklandLoveIt.org/James-Syhabout
