Three Seasons chef John Le opens District 7 Kitchen in San Jose

Fans of Vietnamese cuisine know executive chef John Le from his upscale Three Seasons restaurants that operated for years in Palo Alto, San Francisco and Walnut Creek.

Now he’s back with a contemporary pan-Asian venture, District 7 Kitchen, appropriately located in San Jose’s District 7, the heart of the region’s Vietnamese-American community.

Le’s menu expands upon the innovative dishes that first made their debut at his San Francisco restaurant 20 years ago. “I wanted to honor that history by connecting the two ventures with the cuisine I created during that period,” he says.
