Sandy Chen | Owner
Influenced by a recent trip to France and the fresh, flavorful meals she discovered there, Sandy was inspired to open Le Sud. The small, countryside towns of Provençe reminded Sandy of her hometown on the extreme southeast of coast of Province Zhe Jiang, in a small village called Wen Zhou—a waterfront town surrounded by mountains on three sides. Sandy visits Europe often because half of her relatives moved to Europe when her family moved to United States. Her culinary inspiration stemmed from her father and grandfather, both personal chefs, who moved the family to the U.S. in 1984. Her father taught her how to artfully combine Eastern and Western ingredients and inspired her culinary talent. Sandy opened Chen’s Chinese and Sushi Restaurant in Lakeview and currently operates Koi Fine Asian Cuisine in Evanston. Koi Evanston was voted the Best Asian Restaurant in North Shore Chicago by Make it Better Magazine. Sandy was also honored to receive 2013 Arts & Business Committee Leadership Award from Evanston mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl in 2013. Sandy wanted to open a new restaurant inspired by French flavors. She is focused on globally inspired and locally sourced food. Now in Roscoe Village, where she bought her first house, she is back home. With her newest project, Le Sud, she brings her love for bold, fresh ingredients and her expertise with running multiple successful restaurants. For Sandy, the culinary world isn’t just her job, it’s her lifestyle.
