Gus has been cooking Lebanese food for past 25 years.
Gus says he was born into cooking. "My first memory is watching mom in the kitchen. She was flipping something with a spatula. I tried to copy her and ended up grilling my right thumb! I was three or four," says Gus. “Everyone on both sides of my family cooks. I was surrounded by all different styles of cooking, and worked in the food service industry in just about every capacity you can imagine.”
Gus' wife, Suzane Naddour, is Co-Owner and Manager of Café Matinee and is living her dream. She possesses a zest for life, extraordinary talent, an enormous joy in sharing Gus' love for cooking, and a commitment to giving back. She is an assistant chef, dynamic entrepreneur and a steward of her community.
She describes the secret to the success of Cafe Matinee Lebanese Cuisine as follows:
"Find the best and freshest ingredients you possibly can - then prepare them simply"
Grace Naddour, is the Assistant Manager and daughter of owners Gus and Suzane.
"Despite the occasional bumps, a mother-daughter team encounters from time to time, I cherish the time we get to spend together running a successful business."
Grace loves working with Dad also, and one thing remains constant in this family...their unconditional love for one another and dedication to pleasing their customers.
