Tom Stieber - CEO
David Fischbein - President
Adventurous and entrepreneurial co-owners Tom and David met as undergraduates at the University of California at Berkeley, where they discovered they shared a deep passion for San Francisco's diverse and cutting-edge cuisine. Shunning collegiate culinary clichés like fast food and packaged ramen noodles, they raised eyebrows among their peers by saving their pennies to visit the City's trendiest celebrity chef destinations, to find unique mom-and-pop neighborhood gems favored by locals, and to tirelessly experiment in the kitchen with California's artisanal bounty. After long years in graduate school and in unsatisfying non-culinary careers, Tom and David gave birth to Big City Chefs and created an exciting company that encourages playing with food.
