Local restaurateur and owner, Branko, is a Serbian native who moved to Chicago in 1988 and began to steadily gain experience in the hospitality industry, from hotels to restaurants. He accepted the position of director of service at the University Club of Chicago in 1999, further developing his fine dining skills. In 2004, Branko combined the best of all his experiences to open his first restaurant, Amber, in Westmont, a nearby Chicago suburb.

Four years later, Palikuca opened Topaz in another suburb, Burr Ridge, quickly followed by a third restaurant, Dolce’s. Under his direction, Topaz was Michelin-recommended in 2012 and 2013, and earned admiring reviews from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times.
