'Red or White Ball' Snags One Red-Hot Chef

Andrew Brochu has been having one hell of a time since taking over executive chef duties at Kith & Kin last fall.

Mega star Matt Damon and his filming crew ate damn near everything on the menu at the seafood-focused resto last December. They also gave the chef and his crew a thrill when they hung out a little.

In January, Brochu and his team won the prestigious Jean Banchet award for Best Neighborhood Restaurant.

And in April, he's set to be one of three high-profile chefs serving the VIPs during an exclusive cocktail reception at the Steppenwolf Auxiliary Council's annual Red or White Ball at Salvage One (1840 W. Hubbard St.).

CityBuzz recently interviewed the very fabulous Bravo "Top Chef" judge Gail Simmons on her favorite Chicago restaurants, and boy did she gush!

She's apparently a huge fan of everything Paul Kahan and Bill Kim, and makes a point of hitting up their restaurants whenever she's in town.
