Yves Carreau

Restaurateur Yves Carreau, owner and proprietor of the Big Y Group, hails from Lyon, France, where he attended and graduated from the highly acclaimed Thonon Les Bains Culinary Institute in 1978. Yves took his apprenticeship in the French West Indies, known for vibrant Caribbean cooking with a strong French influence. Ever the adventurer, Yves came to the United States and established himself in Los Angeles, California, where he worked at the famed “La Serre” restaurant in Studio City.


In 1984, Yves moved to Pittsburgh and was hired to manage the kitchen at the Churchill Valley Country Club. A few years later, he opened his first solo venture, Asiago, a French and Italian restaurant, located in One Oxford Centre downtown.


Today, Yves brings his diverse culinary palate and business savvy to the Pittsburgh and Baltimore restaurant scenes with all of his Big Y Group restaurants. Following the immense critical success of his flagship restaurant Sonoma (a west coast kitchen and wine bar) and its Penn Avenue sister Seviche, he took Seviche’s Nuevo Latino tapas concept east to debut Talara in Baltimore’s bustling inner harbor. Yves opened New Orleans jazz brasserie Nola On The Square in March 2011, and shortly punctuated his Market Square presence with the premiere of Pittsburgh’s sexiest new bar and champagne lounge, Perlé, in the summer of 2012.


After the evident success of Sonoma and Seviche, Yves was named 2007 Restaurateur of the Year by the Western Chapter of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association. Yves also received the Wilmer S. Lapp Keystone Award in 2012.


Yves was honored as a 2015 recipient for the Downtown Experience Award by the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation. The Downtown Experience Awards is the night for corporate, elected, entrepreneurial and community leaders to celebrate their collective efforts in creating the dynamic rebirth of Downtown.


Jerry Fink

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Jerry got his start in the restaurant business with the Rusty Scupper, located in the bank building on Forth Avenue in the 1980's. He quickly rose in the corporate ranks to become their youngest general manager and operated the Cleveland Ohio restaurant.


Years later, he returned to his roots in Pittsburgh to pursue another talent, woodworking and cabinetmaking. Although it was through his woodworking that he began an association with the partners of the Brady Street Bridge Cafe on Carson Street in the South Side, he became the restaurant's managerial partner. It was also at Brady Street that started a collaboration and a lasting friendship with Yves.


Jerry's exquisite cabinetry work can be found in some of the finest architecturally designed and award winning kitchens in southwestern Pennsylvania.


Now his handy work can be seen in the bar area of NOLA on the square, but more importantly, he has returned to the restaurant business with Yves to bring Pittsburgh a little flavor of New Orleans on Market Square.


Andrew Hebson

Born in Miami, Florida, Andrew grew a strong appreciation for fish early on in life, either by spearing them or eating them. Eventually Andrew planted his roots in the South Hills of Pittsburgh just prior to high school. It was then that he landed a job as a dish washer and was forever 'hooked' on the restaurant industry.


After graduating, Andrew took advantage of an opportunity to travel the country. Four years and many restaurants later Andrew pursued a culinary degree from the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute. Immediately upon graduation, Andrew completed an externship at Vail Resort in Colorado and then returned to Pittsburgh to work as a Sous Chef at Bruschetta's.


Andrew's inspiration for cooking runs deep into his childhood and family. First, growing up in Miami, he prides himself on his vast knowledge of fish. Also, being raised in an Italian family, Andrew's Grandmother Mary had a strong influence on his then, future chef aspirations. Andrew successfully headed the kitchen at Sonoma Grille, and now will bring his talents to NOLA on the square.


August Vernon

Andrew (August) Vernon was born in Akron, Ohio in 1968. As a child, he was influenced by the paintings of his grandfather and uncles. Growing up in the south hills of Pittsburgh, Andrew attended Mt. Lebanon High School and The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He launched out on an illustrative career in 1990 that took him through Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Miami and Key West. Fascinated by the scale and beauty of the wall murals he had seen, Vernon landed back in Pittsburgh taking on larger scale commissions. Slowly developing his ability and talent for these works, Andrew created some of Pittsburgh's finest and most beloved murals. He received the nomination for The Governor's Award For The Arts in 2004 for his mural, Discovering McKeesport, painted for UPMC. "Everything this award is meant to be is summed up in your artwork" wrote Senators John Pippy and Sean Logan.


In 2005 Andrew began to follow his love for portraiture more closely refining his technique. He received a commission from the Mel Blount All-Star Celebrity Roast honoring such greats as John Stallworth, Rocky Bleier, and in 2007, Lynn Swann. Merging his illustrative and mural background with his current canvas work, Vernon has created a dimensional "cut-out" artwork as seen in B-ness and Lynn Swann as well as the Seviche paintings (view at Seviche in Pittsburgh's cultural district, Penn Avenue).


Andrew's latest paintings have hepled create the New Orleans atmosphere at NOLA on the square. Come in and enjoy his paintings
