Ian Kapitan

Old School BBQ and Recess Diner (opening 2014), Toronto

After stints working with Susur Lee, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, David Bouley, and Craig Shelton, chef Ian Kapitan has landed in Long Island City, where his rustic American nose-to-tail cooking—and housemade charcuterie, preserves, and pickles—is garnering rave reviews.
