BOKA chef named partner
Less than a year after signing on as executive chef at BOKA (1729 N. Halsted St., 312-337-6070), Giuseppe Tentori has been named a partner. Since he first came aboard in March 2007, the former chef de cuisine for Charlie Trotter's has tempted diners with American progressive, seasonal entrees like crispy Iowa pork belly with grilled bok choy, seared Muschovy duck breast served with leg confit and collard greens, and beef tenderloin with licorice braised short ribs.
And the busy Tentori is also getting yet another major project off the ground. He's also the executive chef at Perennial, a chef-driven American bistro, which Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz will open this March in Lincoln Park at 1800 N. Lincoln Ave.
