IN THE NEWS: Chefs Kim & Edgar Alvarez are featured on Philadelphia's ABC News Channel 6

April 17, ABC News — On April 17, ABC News Channel 6 did a 5-minute segment on the hot new businesses in town: Avenida Restaurant.

The cameras went inside Avenida’s kitchen and watched as Chefs Kim and Edgar prepared some of their signature appetizers: Grilled Baby Octopus with Tequila Roasted Tomato Sauce, Garlic and Avocado and Queso Fondito.

“I was trained at the Culinary Institute of America, so I tend to cook by the book,” explains Chef Kim. “And I went to cooking school every day of my life as I watched my mother, aunts and grandmother prepare a meal for our entire family — dozens of people who ate three times a day in our home in Guatemala,” shares Chef Edgar.

“I’d call him more of a free-form chef, and it really works,” adds Kim. “His dishes are original and only use the freshest ingredients. Edgar has taught me a lot and our customers truly benefit from the blending of our two styles.”
