Delicious DIRT. Food Nerds Delight

After loads of speculation and a lot of hype, today, our friends Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz, aka big shots and co-owners of Boka Group, announced Paul Virant will replace Ryan Poli (Tavernita) as executive chef at Perennial.  Not only is Virant, of Vie in Western Springs, soon to be cooking up glory, he is now part owner as well.  Perennial is now aptly named Perennial Virant.  We love the boys’ video announcement earlier today (see below).  Boehm is a superstar on video as you know from his quickie on Food Mafia.
