Justin Carlisle's Project Has Company
Fresh from his job at Stone Creek Kitchen, Chef Aaron Patin joins his friend at soon-to-open Ardent.

So chef Justin Carlisle – late of Milwaukee Street’s Umami Moto – is in the throes of making his dining establishment, Ardent (at 1751 N. Farwell Ave.), a reality this fall. The restaurant will offer an experience I can safely say you will not find elsewhere.Latest news is that Carlisle has added to the Ardent team his friend, fellow chef Aaron Patin – who just exited the Stone Creek Kitchen. (Patin is an alum of SURG Restaurant Group, which is where the two chefs met.) They’re working on the build-out right now, such as the tiny place allows. Carlisle mentioned previously that his resto would serve dinner on Wednesday and Saturday nights, and have seating for 15 diners by reservation only. Beef will come his parents’ Sparta farm, as well as many other select ingredients straight from the source. More details soon.
