The Chef de Cuisine at Odd Duck says Milwaukee's restaurants have much friendlier relationships than in other cities.
How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to move here?
I’ve lived here for about 5 years. I decided to move here when I was considering moving to Berlin. I had a little too much fun in New York and broke the bank, but luckily a good friend of mine lived here so I decided to check it out and here I am.
What about Milwaukee makes it a place you want to work and play?
I like the laid-back approach that you’re able to take here. Being so close to so many awesome farms and cheese makers is pretty amazing. The bartenders around here deserve a round of applause as well. Most important is the connections and friendships between restaurants here. Other cities really don’t have that.
My favorite Milwaukee event is Chill on the Hill and Sunday Bike Polo at Washington Park.
What is one thing about Milwaukee you’d like to see change?
We need more ethnic restaurants and do something about the eyesore that is Jones Island.
What do you do?
If I’m not at work as the Chef de Cuisine at Odd Duck, I spend all of my time eating food that will eventually kill me and spending time with my amazing wife and child.
