Not only is Michael Chernow extremely handsome -- but his easy, relaxed style is a favorite of mine. Co-owner of the Lower East Side's Meatball Shop, Michael began his restaurant career as a bartender. In 2007 Michael enrolled in the French Culinary Institute and graduated with honors. 2010 brought the opening of The Meatball Shop. With its runaway success, the meat-centric eatery has now expanded to Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood. Another upcoming location is planned for the West Village. Busy as ever, Michael keeps his cool with style to spare!
