East Coast Jewish Deli Meets Israeli "Street" FOOD
chef + owner
Hailing from West Sonoma County, Aaron London has been banging around the kitchen since he could reach the pots and pans. Constantly cooking for neighbors and family as a youth, the obsession with all things culinary carved his inevitable path to “chefdom.” Experience in top-tier Michelin starred restaurants such as L’ Astrance, Daniel, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, lead to the opening of London’s own Michelin starred eatery, AL’s Place where the menu explores London’s expansive palate and boundless capacity to explore and create. At AL’s Deli, London is able to play with elements of Israeli street food and traditional East Coast Jewish deli fare - two cuisines that are special and important to him. Through this meditation he has conceived of dishes that are at once totally unique and distinctly Americana. Tattooed and tactical, gregarious yet precise, the heartbeat and mastermind behind AL’s Place never ceases to tease and awaken San Francisco’s unsuspecting eaters.
