Five Finds on Friday: Mike Yager


On Fridays, we feature five finds selected by local chefs and personalities.  This week’s picks come from Mike Yager, sous chef of the new Glass Haus Kitchen.  On New Year’s Eve, Glass Haus Kitchen will offer two seatings.  The first, between 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm, will feature a 4-course dinner.  The second, between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm, will feature a 5-course dinner, champagne toast at midnight, and a private dancing party until 2:00 am.  Yager’s picks:

1)  Charleston Wings at The Lazy Parrot Grill.  “On boys’ night out, that’s the place we go to get the best wings in town.  And, Charleston is by far the best flavor.”

2)  Bison Burger at Beer Run.  “Best beer selection in town by far, and the burger is a bad mamma jamma.”

3)  Hamachi Collar at Ten Sushi.  “Everything Pei does is awesome.  Hamachi collar just happens to be one of those things.”

4)  Hangar Steak at Petit Pois.  “I love steak frites, and I love hangar steak. You can’t go wrong with hangar steak and french fries that are done right.”

5)  PBR at Miller’s Downtown.  “Something about that bar makes PBR taste better than it already does.  Maybe it’s the dirty bar scene with loud music (Barling and Collins amazing Sunday night entertainment), or maybe it’s the fact that they have the best bartenders in the world right at my front door.”
