How New York City powerhouse John Fraser became a vegetarian chef

John Fraser grew up in a Los Angeles suburb eating fruits and veggies from his family’s backyard and fish caught on camping trips. He’s brought a love of fresh, local produce to restaurants throughout his career including his current New York venues the vegetarian restaurant The Nix and The Loyal, a neighborhood brasserie. Now he’s in charge of all the dining options at Ian Schrager’s new Times Square Edition Hotel.
