Stephanie and Eli Berchan met when they were little children running through the grapevine fields in their little hometown in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon. As young adults, life had taken them to different places in the world only to be reunited once again at the shores of the Mediterranean. A love affair for the sea, for the food, and for each other was born and they tied the knot. A common dream of opening a family-owned restaurant moved their lovenest to the beautiful Los Angeles. In a city that graciously welcomes new flavors and embraces creativity, Sumac Cuisine opens its doors to the public in 2021.
