DENNIS LEE


CHEF OF NAMU GAJI

"One of our fair city's most exciting chefs."

— Trevor Felch, SF Weekly

Growing up in suburban Massachusetts, Dennis Lee experienced an intimate spectrum of Asian foods from a young age. Learning how to cook from his mother, he developed an innate sense of flavors and ingredients.

In Namu Gaji’s first year, Lee was recognized with a Rising Star Chef Award from San Francisco Magazine. Lee’s food is highly personal and explorative, though he calls upon strict tradition when appropriate. He is committed to using the best ingredients and exploring the grower/consumer relationship. Namu Gaji has its own farm, which operates without petroleum fuel and uses Korean Natural Farming techniques. Lee credits his success to his strong relationships with friends, family and his brothers (and business partners) David and Daniel.
