Come upon Michael Chernow at any given moment on any given day and you’ll be struck by two certainties; he will be working extremely hard, and he will look exceptionally good doing so. The 32-year-old general manager and co-owner of the Meatball Shop, New York’s wildly popular, four-strong portfolio of restaurants, has spent the past 15 years working his way up the ranks in the industry. “I really feel as if I started my career when I was 13 years old,” he says. “Back then, I was delivering vegan food.
