Toledo Chefs Named in National Competition

Left to right: Chef Aaron Lawson, Chef Keitha West, Chef Moussa Salloukh

Toledo is home to some pretty great food and some very talented chefs. It’s really no wonder that three of our downtown chefs have been nominated for Bon Appetite Magazine’s Fav Chef competition! The winner of the competition will be featured in Bon Appetite Magazine and will win a cash grand prize. We couldn’t be more proud to have such a strong showing.
