Hailing from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, David Foulquier is a Miami-based restaurateur entering his third year running Fooq’s, an eclectic eatery that has made its mark in Downtown Miami’s burgeoning Arts & Entertainment district. An innate gourmande of Persian-French heritage, Foulquier introduced his whimsical restaurant venture in 2015, filling a much-needed void in the Magic City, with a foodie-haven of globally-inspired ‘Feel Good Food.’

An FIU Chaplin School of Hospitality Alum, Foulquier has held positions in acclaimed fine-dining restaurants, with stints at Michelin-star restaurants, including Manhattan fine-dining staple Daniel and culinary education center, Restaurate Hoffman in Barcelona. Foulquier went on to complete a course as a certified Sushi Chef from the Tokyo Sushi Academy, a venture that eventually led to his second concept Sushi Noz (coming winter 2018).

World travels, a passion for hospitality, and innate charm inspire Foulquier’s vibe-driven concept, offering exotic fare offered in a cozy atmosphere. The Persian/Mediterranean cuisine at Fooq’s continues to evolve, showcasing some of Foulquier’s family recipes, and elevating them using the best local product available. A well curated small production wine/Champagne list, show Foulquier’s skill as a Sommelier. Fooq’s continues to take on community initiatives, such as SOBE Food & Wine Fest and Taste of the Nation, putting Downtown Miami on the map.

A Forbe’s 30 under 30 recipient, and recent semifinalist of Zagat’s National 30 under 30 awards, Foulquier’s 2nd venture Sushi Noz on NYC’s Upper East Side will open this winter. Foulquier’s latest venture Sushi Noz brings an 8 seat Edomae Style Omakase experience, in a room designed by one of Japan’s most revered Carpentry Firms Sankakuya, known for their work crafting Unesco World Heritage Sights, as well as 12 Michelin Starred restaurants in Japan.

With 2 restaurants at 28 years old, Foulquier’s eclectic portfolio will continue to grow, with several new entrepreneurial projects in the works.
