There's a new chef in town.
After bouncing around more than four kitchens over the past decade, Greg Harrison has taken the reins as Five Crowns' executive chef.
"I'm going to change it up," he said in a crisp white chef's uniform, his enthusiasm evident as he sat on a bar stool. "I'm bringing new ideas to the table."
Harrison, 35, replaced Ryan O'Melveny Wilson, 31, from Lawry's Restaurants, the restaurant group that includes Five Crowns, on June 19.
Wilson, the grandson of Five Crowns founder Richard Frank, acted as executive chef after veteran Dennis Brask retired after 26 years at the helm in February 2011.
"This is a tough job," Wilson said. "But he is equally as excited when its 8:30 in the morning as he is at 10 at night. His energy is contagious."
