Executive Chef and Co-Owner of Oxalis, a Michelin-starred neighborhood restaurant in Crown Heights, Chef Nico Russell first discovered a love of food at a young age while growing up in the Bay Area. His interest in fine dining led him to storied kitchens all over the world including Restaurant Daniel, Mirazur and Chez TJ. Upon returning to New York, Nico launched Oxalis, a market-driven tasting menu dinner series with his business partner Steve Wong.

In 2018, they made Oxalis permanent, opening in Crown Heights with an emphasis on a creative and elevated dining style available at an accessible price point. Chef Nico’s menu highlights hyper-seasonal ingredients interpreted through the lens of his time cooking in kitchens around the world, incorporating influences such as classical French, Japanese and North African. In October of 2019, only 10 months after opening their doors, Oxalis was awarded its first Michelin star.

Then in 2022 he opened the follow up to Oxalis , Place des Fetes, a neighborhood wine bar focusing on local/ sustainable seafood with seasonal vegetables in the form of a European wine bar. The restaurant was quickly named “Restaurant of the Year” by New York Magazine.
