Top Chef Katsuji Tanabe Chats a’Verde and future plans—Part 2 of 2

In the second half of this two-part chat between star chef Katsuji Tanabe and Publisher Gina Stephens, the top toque walks us through the journey that took him from High Horse to his now highly acclaimed authentic Mexican restaurant a’Verde—including his realized dream of an all-female kitchen, what it’s really like to go on chef competition TV shows (spoiler alert: request Charmin toilet paper), Raleigh as a culinary powerhouse (and why he has now laid down roots in the City of Oaks), what’s brewing in the future and more.
