Executive Chef

< Back to Fisk & Co.

Born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin, Chef Austin followed his inherent passion for cooking to some of the most celebrated restaurants around the world. With more than 15 years of culinary and restaurant experience, he has spent time in the kitchens at the former Craftbar in New York City, Sea Grill, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Brussels, and Novelli Bacaro con Cucina, Chef Konstantin Fillipou’s Michelin-starred restaurant in Vienna.

Chef Austin returns to the Midwest as executive chef of Fisk & Co. to unveil the Belgian-inspired American mussel and beer bar. He looks forward to working closely with local farms and purveyors to bring an elevated yet approachable eatery with an expansive selection of mussels and hand-cut fries.
