Austin, Texas chef Paul Qui will soon open the hotly anticipated Qui. Deana Saukam, his fiancée, who you are introduced to in this video at the Food Republic Interview Lounge at the W Austin during the recent Austin Food & Wine Festival, keeps it all together. She serves as the restaurant’s PR and marketing director — the shirt she wore to the interview reflects her role in her fiancé’s company. And speaking of the company, we’ve learned that Qui and Saukam will be opening their restaurant, Qui, in Austin on June 20. 

Here, in this exclusive video, they discuss how they met as well as other revelations that somehow include references to Gavin Rossdale and Comme des Garçons. Huh? Watch the video!
