Chef Five Bites: Adam Lippe

Adam Lippe, executive chef at The Light Horse, has worked about every job in a restaurant, from waiter to management. The graduate of Johnson and Wales University-Charlotte was the opening chef at Logan at the Heights in Columbia Heights. From there, he moved to The Majestic to work as a sous chef under chefs Cathal Armstrong and Shannon Overmiller. When The Light Horse opened in October 2008, he took over the kitchen as head chef. These are his Five Bites:

1. St. Pierre Veronique (John Dory) at Bistro Bis

2. Chicken bites with hot chili sauce at Eamonn's a Dublin Chipper

3. Fish tacos (their mole is the bomb) at Guajillo

4. Crispy whole duck at XO Taste

5. General Tso's chicken (actually, anything on the menu) at Mr. Ho's Carry-out
