Grae Nonas Lands in Minneapolis, Embraces His “Viking” Heritage

After leaving Olamaie in Austin, the 2015 Best New Chef is going back to his Scandinavian roots at Tullibee in the soon-to-open Hewing Hotel. “Six-foot-four and born with blonde hair, I’m a Viking in so many ways,” says Grae Nonas. The 2015 Best New Chef is talking about why he left Olamaie in Austin and how he will shift from Southern to Scandinavian cooking when his new restaurant Tullibee opens this fall in Minneapolis’s Hewing Hotel.
