In 2011, Georgia Tech alum and chemical engineer Forough Vakili could no longer deny her passion for the food industry, so she went to France to attend culinary school. From the beginning, she cared about more than a plate of food. Her new endeavor, Le Bon Nosh in Buckhead, is meant to be an experience—from the background music to the design details to the feel of the linen. Vakili is intentional in both her work and her style.
