Tourondel started at Cello, an elegant townhouse on the Upper East Side in New York City.  There he amassed a series of stellar accolades, which propelled him into the public eye. When the restaurant closed its doors, Tourondel continued to create – penning a cookbook, Go Fish, and opening BLT Steak in 2004. The modern American steakhouse garnered so much praise that Tourondel later opened BLT Fish, BLT Prime, BLT Burger and BLT Market in New York City. He has brought BLT Steak to Washington D.C., San Juan, Puerto Rico; Los Angeles and White Plains, NY; and BLT Burger to The Mirage in Las Vegas.


With the passion and skill of a French-trained chef, and the sensibility and style of a metropolitan restaurateur, Tourondel has successfully infiltrated the rarified world of New York restaurants and the national dining landscape, much to the delight of critics and diners alike.
