Our fearless founder and mastermind Mitch Einhorn is a talented gourmand who started out in advertising and design before turning his attention to becoming a restaurateur. His venture began with the much beloved Twisted Spoke in 1993, and has grown and evolved alongside his love of all things culinary and viticulture. He debuted LUSH Wine & Spirits (now LUSH Food & Drink) in 2005 to fill a niche in the Chicago wine market. Inspired by visits to small winemakers, he envisioned a place neighbors could go and speak with experts in a friendly, unfussy way… with the winemakers coming out of the back, offering a taste of the latest creation, and connecting and conversing while doing it. He’s fulfilled that vision in a different way, too, now having become a vintner himself. Interested in trying the fruits of this labor? Stop in and ask to sample the white, red, or rosé Chateau Nomad.
