About Tony Maws
Tony Maws is a 'non-traditional' chef -- "an idealist with a kitchen" might be a more appropriate job description. His idealology? That local, seasonal and sustainably sourced ingredients are intrinsically better, and form the most significant part of what makes great food great. Since opening his first restaurant, Craigie Street Bistro in 2002, Chef Maws has risen to international acclaim as one of the country's best chefs, including a James Beard Award for Best Chef Northeast in 2011; "Bostons Best Chef" 2010, 2008, 2006, and 2003 by Boston Magazine and Food and Wine's 2005 Best New Chef. Today he operates two of Boston's culinary gems: Craigie On Main in Cambridge and The Kirkland Tap & Trotter in Somerville. The food at Craigie On Main is defined by his trademark style of fine dining: "refined rusticity." At Kirkland, Maws serves the comfort food he wants on his day off -- centered around a wood-fired grill, and complimented by a killer beer, wine and cocktail selection.
