There are plenty of chefs who are passionate, hungry, driven. But Kimber Hollar is all that and a merlot burger. "I was thinking earlier today that I'm just this small town girl from a cow town who never thought I'd be doing this," says Hollar, fighting back tears. "This is a big deal, especially for someone like me, who's always been incredibly adverse to risk, but I took a leap, had a ton of encouragement, especially from my amazing sisters, and here I am...opening my first restaurant."
