Top Chef David Viana on Revolutionizing the Restaurant Industry

Heirloom Kitchen executive chef and Top Chef alum David Viana joins FSR editors Callie Evergreen and Sam Danley to introduce a new revolutionary team structure designed to burn down the boundary between front-of-house and back-of-house employees, plus mitigate the ever-common burnout of restaurant workers. Also, we’ll talk about his new NextGen Casual restaurant, Lita—an Iberian restaurant opening on April 26—which is bringing new life to Portuguese cuisine in Newark, New Jersey, and how Viana is updating family recipes with modern techniques.
