Strong Opinions, Episode 4: Wildair And Contra’s Chefs On Natural Wine, NYC Pressure

Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske may be two of the youngest chefs in New York City’s restaurant scene, but their early success has earned them the stage. Their East Village restaurants Contra and Wildair have become regular haunts for fans of inventive yet unfussy cooking and creatively curated wine lists, and both attract a steady stream of high-profile culinary visitors from out of town. Both Stone and von Hauske offset their boyish looks with serious chops in the kitchen and a determined outlook that’s rare and refreshing, which is why they’re next up in our ongoing series in which we ask chefs to express their Strong Opinions.
