Day in the Life

Owner’s Day Off: Steve and Jamie Komorek

Monday, February 4th, 2013

Between owning and running Trattoria Marcella and Marcella’s Mia Sorella, Steve (left) and Jamie Komorek are busy men. So what do the brothers do when they get a moment to themselves? They keep on running – together. For the past 14 years, the Komoreks, who live across the street from one another, have been logging miles. But these aren’t just “let’s-work-off-the-T-Ravs” types of runs. With marathons in their past, when Steve and Jamie lace up their sneakers, just like how they run their businesses, they’re in it for the long haul.

For more from the Komoreks, check out Michael Renner’s review of their new restaurant, Marcella’s Mia Sorella.

Scenes From My Life: Ben Poremba

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

When finding a location for his wine bar Olio and restaurant Elaia, it was imperative for Ben Poremba, also co-owner of Salume Beddu, to stay in the city. Now, a run-down historic home and former gas station have been transformed into what is becoming one of the cornerstones of urban renewal for the once-blighted McRee Town neighborhood. How does Poremba handle a move, a baby boy and two newly opened projects? It’s all in a day’s work.

Click through this slideshow for a snapshot of a day in the life of Ben Poremba.
