Philadelphia, PA - Blind Barber is proud to introduce their new Philadelphia chef, Chef Alex Young, a fresh face to the city's culinary scene. He was born in New York City and raised in Long Island, and he moved to Philadelphia recently from New York City from Queens - he was working as Head Chef leading the kitchen for Seneca in Ridgewood, New York.
About Philly Chef Alex Young
Before that, he was the Head Chef at Octopus Bar in Atlanta. He loved that bar so much that it inspired him to patronize the bar and start cooking there. He worked his way to the top of the kitchen team. He began at Octopus Bar in 2013 and became head Chef in 2017. He left there and went to Seneca in November 2019 - right before the pandemic. He moved during the pandemic and arrived in Philadelphia in March of 2020 when the country shut down - and he started at Blind Barber just weeks ago.
For the new menu and his new culinary adventure at Blind Barber, Chef brings influences from New American cuisine - he likes to have fun with food and get together foods, flavors, and ingredients from different cultures - and bring them together with small details and intricate techniques to make simple foods more special. At Blind Barber, while the kitchen is on the smaller side, Chef brings big flavors and an expanded menu to foodies throughout Philadelphia.
Every single dish is new and reinvented with Chef's recipes and cooking perspective. Look for other unique words, seasonal changes, and the addition of weekly and monthly specials - all set to start in the coming weeks.
