Win and Sutida Somboonsong- WIN Signature Restaurants

About 

For more than two decades, this husband-wife duo has been a culinary powerhouse on the Main Line. While each WIN Signature Restaurant embraces individuality by showcasing its respective regional cuisine, they all share universal ideals: fresh ingredients, a creative Asian-fusion menu, cosmopolitan décor, exceptional service, and a chic clientele.  And just like the menu, the partnership between Win and Sutida continues to evolve.

“We pretty much have our roles figured out,” says Sutida. “Win is the engineer, much more practical, number-based, and skeptical. He calls me ‘the dreamer,’ who conjures up a great deal of risky, design-driven projects. Our different interests makes for a surprisingly good team. But we constantly learn new things. The job description of a restaurateur always lengthens. In today’s world, we need to be social media–savvy and have nutritional insight. A good restaurateur will always be adjusting.”
