Jonathon Sawyer (Cleveland)
When I saw chef Jonathon Sawyer's face, I actually squealed. Not to already pick favorites, but . . . this chef/owner of The Greenhouse Tavern has serious cooking chops. I will never forget trying his beef jerky bucatini, quite possibly my fondest pasta memory of all time. I also watched him prep a scallop in real time to form this picturesque scallop crudo. You can expect him to bring comfort and exceptional beauty to his spot-on cuisine. I can't wait to watch him cook.
