Best Chef 2020

It takes some guts to brand a restaurant with your own name, but Loukinens’ has the moxie to back it up. In case you don’t know the back story, it’s co-owned by Keith and Laurie Loukinen. Keith was formerly the food and beverage director at the Wyndham hotel downtown and was behind its signature restaurant, Nick & Nino’s Penthouse Steakhouse. On our last few visits to Loukinens’, Keith came out from the kitchen and made the rounds, visiting every table to make sure everyone was enjoying their dining experience. Judging from your votes this year, Springfield is definitely high on Loukinens’. It describes itself as “casual upscale dining” and “American cuisine with a twist.” With dishes like spiced duck won tons and spiced tuna poke crisps, Loukinens’ has certainly delivered on its promise.
