Michael Lee Rafidi is the executive chef of Chef Michael Mina’s RN74, a wine-centric French restaurant located in San Francisco where the Financial District and SOMA neighborhoods meet.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Rafidi grew up just outside of Washington, D.C. where he developed a passion for food at a young age spending time in a professional kitchen with his grandfather, who was also a chef in Washington, D.C. From these roots, Rafidi’s passion for cooking grew and by age 17 he was working behind the stove and soon moved on to Pennsylvania Culinary Institute’s Le Cordon Bleu Program.

Rafidi returned to the United States in July 2012 and returned to the Mina Group when a chance to fill the role of Corporate Executive Sous Chef arose in 2014. In his first year back he was responsible for driving the culinary operations behind seven different restaurant openings, while assisting in the global culinary management of Mina Groups 27 total operations. Wanting an opportunity to put his name on one kitchen and focus all of his energy on a singular operation Rafidi jumped at the opportunity to take over RN74 as the Executive Chef in 2015.
