Fausett’s dedication to his craft has earned him numerous accolades, including a well-deserved 2015 nomination for Rising Culinary Star by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) and a 2014 StarChefs Rising Star Chef Award. Last year, Fausett was also named to DC’s first-ever Zagat 30 Under 30 list of “Rock Stars Redefining the Industry.” As Executive Chef at Proof, Fausett honors the restaurant’s Modern American focus, continuing to weave Mediterranean influences into new menu items while using local ingredients as much as possible.
