For now, if you want to eat Paul Petersen’s food, you’re going to have to drive way the hell out to Marathon, Texas, one of those specks on the map guys like Lyle Lovett sing about. A few years ago, Houston oil man J.P. Bryan bought the ramshackle Gage Hotel, restored its historic premises, and installed 36-year-old Petersen behind the stoves at the Café Cenizo, previously featured our new executive chef, Paul Peterson.  This of course was prior to him coming onboard as executive chef of Rick’s Chophouse and Sauce On The Square. The former drummer for San Antonio bands Gollum and Scary Manilow decided to switch to cooking, training at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York.
