SMOKE N FUSION
Chef Szostak (who has spent over 20-years working in the industry as a chef and previously owned The Fine Diner in Inglewood) opened Smoke ‘n’ Fusion on Macleod Trail in April 2019, offering a comfortable 70-seat space that’s purposely designed to look and feel like a home so guests can take a load off while they eat, as a vehicle to “Build Relationships and Growing Community”; nurturing his team and giving them autonomy on the job and by partnering with not-for-profits like the Impact Society and the Calgary Chefs Association.
Executive Chef, Kosta Galanos was literally born into the industry and has over 30 years of experience in all aspects of the industry - he started as a dishwasher in his parent’s restaurant and received his first set of stitches at the age of 10. Chef Kosta struggled with drug addiction in the past; with the love, support and help of his wife, family, great friends and a focus on his goals, he came through. He has a huge heart and is always willing to lend a hand to those in need - especially those who struggle with addiction. He has mentored many other cooks and naturally leads by example.
