Colby Garrelts talks to Andrew Zimmern about the High Life, Novel and Rye

The James Beard Awards likely feel like the Saturday Night Live five-timers club for Bluestem/Rye’s Colby Garrelts. He’s got a win under his belt, and now his fellow medal winners are reaching out to take his vision of Midwestern fare national.

Andrew Zimmern – the food host, writer and well-traveled eater – has a Q&A with Garrelts that covers his new restaurant, what’s in his fridge and where he likes to eat. Miller High Life makes a cameo as does Novel, the new restaurant from Ryan Brazeal (you can read Charles Ferruzza’s interview with him here), slated to open July 9 on the West Side.
