Los Angeles native Micah Wexler, 32, cooked in some pretty posh joints — Craft in L.A. and L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas — before opening his own place, the Middle Eastern-focused Mezze, in March 2011. The restaurant received plaudits but lasted barely a year, due to issues with a neighboring construction site.
Micah Wexler is the Seth Rogen of chefs — the kind of guy you could grab a beer with. But in the kitchen he’s all business, and this spring he’ll bring nouveau deli to the City of Angels.
Micah Wexler will face off against Bobby Flay on The Food Network’s ‘Iron Chef.’ Could a member of the tribe be TV’s next big foodie thing?
