Haig Krikorian and Cindy Lalime met while working at the Caravansary Cafe in San Francisco, CA. Haig was a chef fresh out of the California Culinary Academy and Cindy was a waitress. In 1980 they married, and in 1985, with two kids (ages 1 and 3) started Lalime’s Cafe (then on the corner of Solano Ave. and Santa Fe in Albany). Haig and Cindy Krikorian now oversee five restaurants in the East Bay Area: Lalime’s, Fonda, T-Rex, Jimmy Beans and Sea Salt–collectively known as K2 Restaurant Group.
