Patricia Yeo has been winning acclaim for her unique cuisine ever since her first restaurant, AZ, opened in 2000. By melding elements of an international upbringing that took her from Malaysia to England to the United States with a precision that she honed as a trained scientist, she has created an innovative, elegant cuisine. Her culinary alchemy was summarized by The New York Times' William Grimes who enthused in his three-star review at AZ, "In dish after dish, she shows a rare combination of audacity and refinement, sustained with admirable consistency over the entire menu."
