Where do local chefs go for a casual meal?
"I love going to Moy's Chinese restaurant. I've been going there for 15 years. It's just phenomenal food done with incredible technique in a non-pretentious way. My favorite dish is the shrimp dumpling wonton soup. Chef Moy's handmade dumplings are world-class."
-Bill Glover, executive chef of Gallerie Bar and Bistro
"Harvest Pizzeria [is great] because their food is super consistent and really delicious, and it feels like a really comfortable place to go. It's one of those places I'm more than happy to get the exact same ting every time I go: their pizza with kalamata olives."
-Nicolene Schwartz, founder of Roake Tonics
"I like Due Amici's brunch. You don't have to go in super dressed up. Any brunch that offers a brunch burger is really fun. [My favorite is] definitely the brunch burger, every time, with eggs over-easy on top."
-Marcus Meachum, executive chef at Bodega
"The Tavern in Olde Towne East is a nice place to go after work to have a beer and grab a bite. Their outdoor patio with the fire pit is a nice atmosphere. For what they're doing, their food is pretty tasty. Their salads-they're fresh, nice and big."
-David Tetzloff, executive chef at G. Michael's
"I love Kitchen Little in the North Market. They do a great cassoulet. Everything is scratch cooking; they have the food being made right in front of you. It's nice to see people who know what they're doing with the ingredients, and they're doing things right."
-Thomas Smith, executive chef at The Worthington Inn
"Lately I've been loving brunch at Wolf's Ridge Brewing. To me, it's a cool, casual place with great, thoughtful food. I love the environment. They have these apple cider glazed doughnuts [that are] really yummy, and their [corn-stuffed] omelet is really good."
-Cara Mangini, chef and owner of Little Eater
