Chef Max Levy was born and raised in New Orleans, where his grandfather taught him to cook gumbo at a tender age. By 12, he was working in his first kitchen, and after stints on an eel farm and as a tuna handler, Max stormed the sushi kitchens of New York. As the only non-Japanese sushi chef at Sushi Yasuda, he earned three stars from The New York Times. In 2009, after moving to Beijing, he opened Apothecary Cocktails & Dining, bringing creole-tinged fare to China. From 2009 to 2011, and again in 2013, he was Time Out Beijing's Chef of the Year while heading up the kitchen at the late Bei. Today, Levy owns Okra, a sushi and cocktail bar, and is poised to open Traitor Zhou's Nonkosher Delicatessen in Beijing's Sanlitun District. Photo: Gregory Boyd/Courtesy of Max Levy
