Science may have figured out what sweetness sounds like, but there's still one thing we're kind of wondering: who is blasting Nas from the kitchen of our favorite restaurant? According to the New York Times, it's the chef. Since we've already extrapolated on the eating habits, personal lives, and various tattoo collections of our generation's rising tide of culinary celebs, it's about time we got down to their listening habits. Nirvana? Bach? Azealia?


If you're Jesse Schenker, the 29-year-old chef behind the West Village bistro Recette, it's Nine Inch Nails or Metallica. ("If a server needs something from me, and I'm in the middle of an air-guitar lick, I'm going to finish it before I respond," he says.) Meanwhile, Eddie Huang's restaurant on E. 14th Steet is just as known for it's hip-hop as its pork buns: "The most upset I’ve ever been at Baohaus is when I walked in and someone was playing Taylor Swift."

Hearing from all our favorite cooks has us wondering, though, what about our readers? What's your go-to kitchen soundtrack? Let us know!
