The Black Chef Series Taking Over Maison Yaki This Fall
Here’s what and when they’re cooking.

Updated August 28, 2020

  • Back in June, Greg Baxtrom (the chef behind Maison Yaki and Olmsted) committed to offering Maison Yaki’s kitchen space to aspiring Black entrepreneurs, chefs, bartenders, and sommeliers who want to work on their own projects.

  • Since then, four chefs in the series (Lani Halliday, Jared Howard, Michelle Williams, and Mohamed Wahiba) have hosted two-week pop-ups. You have until this Sunday, August 30th, to try Mohamed Wahiba’s pop-up before the fall segment of the series hits. Having spent time cooking at Speedy Romeo, Wahiba specializes in pizza, and is also serving his family’s secret lasagna recipe. He’s the chef at Tripoli Events - a company that hosts pizza and pasta classes, catering, and private events. You might know Tripoli Events from their pizza booth inside of Berg’n in Bed-Stuy.

  • Baxtrom recently announced the next set of chefs who will be taking over Maison Yaki’s kitchen between August 31st and October 25th. Here’s a little more information about who they are and when you can taste what they’ve got cooking:
