Tim Maslow

Chef Tim Maslow

Restaurant: Strip-T's, Ribelle (Read a review)
Location: Watertown, MA; Brookline, MA
Why He's Amazing: Because he's turned his family's sandwich shop into a destination for quirky, umami–packed comfort food.
Culinary School: The French Culinary Institute (New York City)
background: Brick Hotel (/sites/default/files/ewtown, PA); Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssäm Bar (New York City)
Quintessential Dish: Chicken wings with Moxie sauce
What's Moxie?: A bittersweet New England soda; Maslow also adds the Indonesian chile paste sambal oelek to his chicken-wing sauce.
On Revamping the Family Business: "Growing up, I spent every single summer and holiday break working in my dad's restaurant, so it kind of comes full circle. I came in and turned the place upside down. It was a regime change."
For the Old-Timers: "I kept one dish from the old menu [at Strip-T's], because I grew up eating it: the Caesar salad. It's the best I've ever had."
