Faces of Falls Church: Jacques Imperato

Chef Jacques Imperato was 20 years old when he came to the States from France. With little to no English under his belt he worked his way through Kitchens until finally taking over La Cote D’or Cafe located on Lee Highway in 2016. While talking with him he asked, “Do you know what the most expensive thing in a restaurant is?…An empty chair.” (Photo: J. Michael Whalen)
