• Paul Kulik
    Executive Chef & Owner

James Beard Award Semi-Finalist, Kulik is also an influential Omaha chef & restauranteur of Boiler Room & Le Bouillon. Apart from long walks on the beach, he's tickled by his obsession with high quality sourcing, developing relationships with producers, and the total service experience. From being the first to usher in the local craft cocktail movement at Boiler Room, to transforming La Buvette, formally a simple wine-and-cheese bar, to the casual French-foodie paradise that we know now, Kulik has given McDonald's a run for their money & changed the way Omaha eats for the better. 

  • Kye Adkisson
    Chef de Cuisine

When is comes to leading our kitchen, Kye Adkisson’s philosophy is defined by a very wise Jedi: “Do or do not, there is no try.” The eldest of three culinary-obsessed brothers, Kye has surrounded himself with friends and family who are like-minded in their pursuit of high quality food. Kye has taken a quick rise, from The Boiler Room, then joining Paul as he opened Le Bouillon, all owed to his focus, and efficiency in the kitchen. If you are so lucky to find Kye not working, be sure to buy him a Tiki drink, and ask about his cats.

The brains & brawn behind Maven Social Group, Bondelid's blood gets moving whenever he's piecing together people & projects that help to make Omaha a more fun & interesting place to live.
