Columbus is home to many celebrated restaurants, and our readers and editors take time each year to recognize some of the top chefs behind those eateries. This year, both of the restaurateurs behind popular new spot Ambrose & Eve landed in the Top 10 list, with Catie Randazzo getting the most votes to land in first place.

Randazzo gained a quick following with the Challah! food truck before venturing into opening the brick-and-mortar Ambrose & Eve in late 2018 with business partner Matt Heaggans.

In addition to Ambrose & Eve, Randazzo will be making news again in 2020 while co-founding the first Preston’s Burgers physical location in Downtown Columbus.
