New Restaurant Serves French Food On Shaker Square
A new restaurant is open on Shaker Square. Edwins is the brain child of chef Brandon Chrostowski, who has worked in Paris, New York and Chicago, but now calls Cleveland home.
What makes Edwins special is the staff. Former convicts are taught by Brandon and others the culinary arts.
Brandon also teaches current prisoners at two detention facilities in Northeast Ohio.
The restaurant features classic French cuisine, prepared by Clevelanders being given a second chance.
In this interview with Jim McIntyre, Brandon explains the motivation behind Edwins Leadership and Restaurant Insitute.
