Amy Schumer may be spending a lot more time on Martha’s Vineyard.

Word is the comedian-actress is dating chef Chris Fischer, whose family has been running Beetlebung Farm in Chilmark since 1961. Us Weekly reports the couple had a cozy dinner in New York City the other night.

Fischer, whose sister is Schumer’s personal assistant, worked as a sous chef at Mario Batali’s Babbo in New York before returning to the Vineyard, where he briefly ran the kitchen at the Beach Plum Inn. In 2016, Fischer, whose BFF is actor Jake Gyllenhaal, won a James Beard award for his “Beetlebung Farm Cookbook.” He’s also a part-time instructor in BU’s Metropolitan College Programs in Food & Wine.


Schumer, who was just in Boston shooting the comedy “I Feel Pretty,” previously dated furniture designer Ben Hanisch. They broke up last spring.
