Chef Tony Koraneekit started his culinary career in New York's famous Restaurant Row in Times Square. After moving to New York from Thailand in 2005, Tony, a business major at local Pace University, started working nights in his aunt's seafood restaurant, Danny's Grand Sea Palace in midtown Manhattan. The Sea Palace boasted lavish seafood creations and a nightly cabaret that was famous with its patrons. It was here that Tony discovered he had a passion not only for food but for the entrepreneurial side of the restaurant business. In 2007, Tony moved to the Midwest and continued working with his aunt as a sushi chef, in two of her Thai/Sushi Bar-inspired restaurants just north of Chicago.
