Kal Abdalla, Executive Chef

A native of the Syrian island of Arwad, Chef Kal grew up with an appreciation for the Eastern Mediterranean’s bountiful fish, seafood and organically grown fruits and vegetables. He is a master at delivering beautifully composed plates that focus on simple, fresh, perfectly prepared ingredients, bringing layers of flavor and texture to modern American dishes that focus on seasonal, local ingredients.

Chef Kal keeps balance at the forefront of every recipe by ensuring the chemistry of each ingredient melds perfectly together to create an impeccable, palatable flavor profile. “Chemistry is always key, my goal is to be simple with my ingredients and make sure everything comes together perfectly for a better taste and clean flavors,” said Chef Kal. “Combining this concept with the freshest, highest quality product available, I am truly able to bring something special to the table.”

Previously the executive chef at The Forge in Miami Beach for 20 years, Chef Kal has accumulated multiple awards for his work, including multiple DIRONA awards, Wine Spectator’s “Best Steak in America” and the Miami chapter of Chaine des Rotisseurs’ “Best Restaurant of the Year” award. He also had the honor of preparing dinner for both of President Ronald Reagan’s Inaugural Galas.

Among the many accolades bestowed upon Chef Kal, in 2020, he was selected as one of the top chefs in America to present at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival’s “Best of the Best”.
