Introduction

 

 

 

Nancy Oakes, Executive Chef, Co-Owner

 

Chef Nancy Oakes has reached and sustained a level of awareness and culinary excellence held by few Chefs in America today.  Cleary, her customers have felt cared for and they have spoken: she is indeed San Francisco’s most beloved Chef. Virtually every readers’ poll of San Francisco Bay Area publications names Nancy Oakes as the most popular chef, and Boulevard as the favorite restaurant in San Francisco, including the Zagat guide for seven years in a row and the San Francisco Chronicle Reader’s Poll.  She was also one of a few restaurants to receive a coveted Star each year in the Michelin Guide.  Her peers have spoken also, and in 2001 Chef Nancy Oakes garnered a tremendous and much-deserved James Beard Foundation Award, for “Best Chef in California.”  The James Beard Foundation also nominated Nancy Oakes for the “Outstanding Service Award” in 2002 and 2004 and the “Outstanding Restaurant Award” seven years running.

 In other media, Boulevard, The Cookbook, written by Chef Oakes with Co-Chef Pamela Mazzola received both the James Beard Foundation and IACP nomination for 2006 and was picked by the Amazon Cookbook Editor at the top of his favorite cookbooks in 2006.  Chef Oakes is also a regular guest on the local ABC network show, View From The Bay, and is also a frequent guest on Radio and as a public speaker both locally and internationally.  Oakes is also a regular contributor to Bon Appetit Magazine and has appeared in Fine Cooking Magazine as well as appeared in magazines around the world including Spain, Japan, Korea, Norway and New Zealand.
