From the stage to the kitchen

The restaurant industry is in flux. It no longer has its nose in the air. Quality food and revered institutions are opening their arms to the people… because the people are stoked about food now more than ever. Thanks to an increase in popularity of the farmers markets encouraging cooking and a dope slew of Netflix documentaries and Chopped seasons available for bingeing, people are pretty into the food industry and the art of cooking. And what’s maybe more interesting than the consumers is the new wave of restaurateurs that are being welcomed into the industry with open arms and happy bellies.

The latest class of people killing it in the kitchen with innovative menus and inventive recipes are the kind of people hanging out at local punk shows after-hours—not slaving away behind steel countertops into the wee hours of the night after a long day of working in an unrelated industry. Click through to discover five of the most punk-rock, anti-foodie restaurateurs on the scene.
