SP: Unfussy with a great neighborhood feel. I moved from Ann Arbor, Michigan, 12 years ago to help Rene Becker open Hi-Rise [Bread Company] and have been there ever since. I like good, unfussy food. Asta will be like being invited to someone's home for a really good home-cooked meal. But Alex can also be adventurous. He'll get a chance to push the boundaries in the five- and eight-course dinners.

Alex, you are just weeks away from opening your first restaurant. Any kinks?

AC: No kinks. But stressful. Every decision has to be made right this second. I've had times where I wanted to kill myself. I keep reminding myself that I'm a chef, not a professional restaurant builder.
