Bill Kim (Temporarily Paused)

Born in Seoul and raised in Chicago, chef Bill Kim’s earliest food memory is standing at his mother’s side, grinding sesame seeds with a mortar and pestle. Back when his career first started, Kim immersed himself in French cuisine, with guidance from industry heavyweights like Jean Banchet and Charlie Trotter. These days, he’s developed a signature style all his own, dispensing a hit list of border-blending, Asian-inflected treats, such as the belly-warming udon soup and pillowy dumplings that are so addictive, you’ll wish you had ordered double—save yourself the wanting and just do it.
