One Market Restaurant
As General Manager/Partner of One Market Restaurant in San Francisco, Larry Bouchard works to ensure that the restaurant upholds its commitment to providing an unparalleled dining experience for its guests.
“With a history of serving quality cuisine in an ideal city location, One Market Restaurant has been a popular force on the dining scene since opening,” says Bouchard. “One of the most important aspects of my job is to make sure that we continue to surpass our guests’ expectations and raise the bar in terms of excellence in cuisine and service.”
Bouchard got his first taste of the culinary world when he was waiting tables in college and became entranced by the bustling excitement and activity. He later worked as a waiter under Chef Dennis Foy at Tarragon Tree in New Jersey and as a food runner under Chef Michael Roberts at Trumps in Los Angeles. Bouchard was the opening Manager of One Market in 1993 and served as General Manager from 1997 to 2000 and General Manager/Partner from 2000 to 2008. After a two year Southern California sabbatical, he returned to One Market in March 2010.
“The most rewarding aspect of my position is receiving a sincere ‘Thank you’ from a guest for all of our collected efforts, and knowing that this guest will share their experience at One Market Restaurant with their friends and family.”
Bouchard’s civic involvement has included a stint as a Director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association and his participation as a founding member of the Steuart Street Restaurant Row Association.
In Bouchard’s spare time, he enjoys screenwriting and playing with his rescued Chocolate Labrador, Georgie-Girl.
