Nopa serves simple, rustic food created with seasonal ingredients sourced from local purveyors. The sense of community that Nopa looks to instill in its co-workers and guests alike begins with taking care of people, contributing something back into the community, and underlying everything we do with a passion for feeding people.
Nopa's chef is Laurence Jossel, a former Chronicle Rising Star Chef who opened Chez Nous with great success in 2000, following stints at La Folie, the Ritz-Carlton with Gary Danko, and Kokkari. His partners in nopa are Allyson Jossel and Jeff Hanak. This trio, who met while all were working for Chow Restaurants, combines years of food and wine experience with outstanding restaurants in the Bay Area.
