Nathanial Zimet was born in Sarasota, Fl and raised in Hillsborough, NC by a mother who made her own stocks. Growing up in food , “from scratch orgins”, Zimet always wanted to cook and eventually own his own restaurant. He eventually dropped out of college and enrolled in culinary school. While at Le Cordon Bleu Long, everything in his mind just clicked!
In 2006, Zimet introduced The Que Crawl (a.k.a the purple truck) and after a few years, Chef Zimet and business partner James Denio opened up Boucherie – a cozy little restaurant in a cottage in the Carrollton area. Now, Boucherie has reopened on 1506 S. Carrollton Ave, where Chef Zimet still changes the menu every two months.
