Upstart chef Sklar knocked it out of the park with his menus of creative, upscale comfort food at Social Kitchen & Bar. He's since been on the move in a huge way as his hospitality company has gone on to open MEX and Beau's Grillery in Bloomfield Hills. He recently announced plans to carve the old Chen Chow Brasserie space up into two restaurants — a French brasserie named Au Cochon, and an Italian eatery called Arthur Avenue, redesigning the space and hiring 150 employees before the doors open this summer. What's next for Sklar? Opening a comfort food spot in Chicago called Bernie's Lunch & Supper, as well as another Social Kitchen & Bar in Grand Rapids, naturally.
