Restaurateurs to advise chefs


Local restaurateur Neal Brown will advise chefs at Fishers Test Kitchen as they launch their culinary concepts. The three restaurants in the Fishers Test Kitchen are Lil Dumplings, Natural State and Korave Korean BBQ.

Neal and his partner Greg Howe have more than 30 years of experience. They plan to coach chefs on creating successful businesses and integrating larger teams into their operations.

“Far too often restaurants can languish in the startup phase, so we will be helping these chefs build procedures and systems to standardize how they operate, creating cultures for success,” Brown stated.

Mayor Scott Fadness said the city plans to give the new chefs as much support as possible.

“Neal and Greg have a demonstrated record of success as restaurateurs, and their expertise and mentorship will be invaluable to the startup culinary scene in Fishers,” Fadness stated.

Brown said since he and Howe are restaurateurs by trade, they look forward to sharing what they know and mentoring other chefs.

The Fishers Test Kitchen opened Feb. 1. In addition to the three restaurants, it also is home to Sun King Brewery and The Signature Table, a culinary experience for the public.
