KAIS BOUZIDI PROPRIETOR
Born and raised in Paris, France, Kais Bouzidi grew up in a family of restaurateurs and began his career in the restaurant industry at the age of 14. After spending his formative years learning the inner workings of the family business from his father, Bouzidi moved from Paris to San Francisco at the age of 21. Bouzidi’s drive and ambition allowed him to realize the possibility of running his own restaurant in 2006 – he studied the San Francisco market, the location and the local food culture extensively, building the concept of what would ultimately become Sens Restaurant in October of 2007. Having traveled throughout Southern Europe and Northern Africa, Bouzidi was inspired by the flavors and cultures of Mediterranean countries and cuisines. Born to a French mother and Tunisian father, Bouzidi brings the same blending of cultural influences to the menu and ambiance at Sens. With its wildly popular happy hour, seasonal Mediterranean fare, and gorgeous patio spaces with breathtaking views, Bouzidi has successfully established Sens as a dining destination on the Embarcadero.
Looking to establish a second location with a similar atmosphere and menu, but with a modern twist, Bouzidi has successfully launched his newest restaurant concept, Barcha, in the 425 Market Street Building and located at 28 Fremont. Having the perfect location to satisfy corporate clientele as well as locals and tourists alike, this Mediterranean bistro with Parisian influences offers delicious fair and a chic, yet welcoming “smart casual” ambiance.
