42. Paul Kahan

Paul Kahan

AGE: 49
OCCUPATION: Chef and restaurateur

He was the first person to bring Chicagoans communal tables and small plates (Avec), farm-to-table dining (Blackbird), and the Euro-style beer hall (The Publican). His latest foray, a butcher shop/restaurant called Publican Quality Meats, proves Kahan doesn’t just have his finger on the pulse of the dining world; he is the pulse.
