John and Diane Aouad are the owners and operators of Osta’s Lebanese Cuisine, headquartered in the city of East Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan.
When it comes to preparing a fine dining experience, nothing takes the place of experience. And training. John started his chef’s training by shadowing his father, the great Master Chef “Osta” John. In 1972, John Aouad attended culinary school in Lebanon and later attended Secchia Institute of Culinary Arts in Grand Rapids.
Osta’s Lebanese Cuisine began in Beirut in 1950. Nearly 30 years ago, son of the founder opened up their United States facility. “Osta’s Lebanese Cuisine offers exquisite flavor using fresh greens, hearty grains and aromatic spices all imported from Lebanon to create the highest quality grilled meats and flavorful vegetarian cuisine.”
Osta’s belong to the Small Business A of Michigan, the Kent County Restaurant Association and the Wyoming-Kentwood Chamber of commerce. Their restaurant has been featured in their local Grand Rapids business journal as one of the top restaurants in the area and they win a sanitation award from Kent County every year for having one of the cleanest restaurants.
