Corson recalls a bunch of fishermen in Maine, where he lived, hanging a “sushi restaurant” sign on their bait shed. “From their point of view, eating raw fish was a stupid, gross thing,” he says.

If interior design doesn’t get you going, chef Aaron Lemieux posted some food porn from the Chicco’s kitchen on his Instagram account.
