Chicago Chef Brian Fisher has worked coast-to-coast from New York to San Francisco. His time in kitchens across the country eventually led him back to his Chicago roots as Chef de Cuisine at Michelin-starred Schwa in Wicker Park. During his time there he explored many styles of cooking, international cuisines and use of seasonal ingredients. After leaving the restaurant in late 2016, Fisher made headlines for helming the kitchen at the Saved by The Max pop up in Chicago where he served classic, yet elevated diner fare.

Fisher always dreamed of opening a restaurant of his own, and it became a reality with Entente, where he earned his first Michelin star in 2017 just after the concept’s one-year anniversary. Entente offers an ever-changing à la carte menu, inspired by seasonality, creativity and the melting pot of cultures that make up the diversity of the team. Diners are encouraged to create their own tasting menu from the à la carte offerings, with an elevated wine program and customizable beverage pairings available for each dish. In February 2018, Fisher was named a 2018 James Beard Award Semifinalist in the Best Chef: Great Lakes category. In May 2018, Fisher led the culinary charge for the opening of the Saved by The Max L.A. pop up.
