Saigon Sisters is pleased to welcome Matt Riordan as its new Executive Chef. In this role he will oversee the culinary operations of the Zagat-rated Vietnamese restaurant. Chef Riordan brings more than ten years of experience in fine dining to his role, most recently, as the Executive Chef of Pops for Champagne.
A Chicago native, Chef Riordan already has big plans for the menu. “I want Saigon Sisters to become the go-to restaurant for unique Vietnamese flavors with a decidedly Chicago and Midwestern focus.” Opened in November 2010 as an extension of their successful Chicago French Market stand, Saigon Sisters has received numerous industry awards, including being named one of Chicago Magazine’s Best New Restaurants, under the management of sisters Theresa Nguyen and Mary Nguyen Aregoni.
“Matt stood out because of his love of Asian flavors and interesting ideas on how we can continue to elevate traditional Vietnamese street food favorites” said Mary. “We want to keep surprising our diners and winning new fans with fresh, delicious, and high-quality Vietnamese food in an elegant casual space.”
