WHO: Chef/part­ner, Fire­fin Poké Shop ( fire­fin­poke.com), E+O Food and Drink (eo­foodand­drink.com), Now Open Project (nowopen­pro­ject.com). HOME ’HOOD: The Loop. “I love that there is so much en­ergy dur­ing the day—it re­minds me of NYC. At night, it be­comes a ghost town and gives me some peace and quiet when I get home.” GO-TO SPOT: “I travel a lot, and when I come back I crave Monti’s (4757 N. Tal­man Ave., 773-9426012; ilove­mon­tis.com) for cheeses­teaks. I also love Chi Café (2160 S. Archer Ave., 312-842-9993; chi­cafeon­line.com) in Chi­na­town, a Hong Kong-style diner that serves the com­fort food I grew up with.” HIDDEN GEM: “Prosecco (710 N. Wells St., 312-951-9500; prosecco.us.com) in River North is one of the most authen­tic Ital­ian restau­rants in Chicago.” DE-STRESS METHOD: “I go for walks. It lets me take mo­ments for my­self and take the time to ap­pre­ci­ate the things that I’m gifted with.” FALL FASH­ION ES­SEN­TIAL: “Scarves—the more color, the bet­ter. I have 20 to 25 from all around the world in dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als.”
