Chef Adan Trinidad - Originally from Puebla, Trinidad got an early start in professional cooking, working in Philly kitchens by the age of 15. By 23, he was sous chef to some of the top Latino culinary talents in the region, including Jose Garces at El Vez and Douglas Rodriguez at Alma de Cuba. After helping chef Richard Sandoval expand with 40 restaurants across the U.S., Trinidad returned to Philly, upping the culinary game at Joe Gunn and Casey Parker’s popular beer bar Jose Pistola’s. He’s since gone on to partner with Gunn and Parker for two additional projects: Sancho Pistola’s in Fishtown and the brand-new Pistola’s del Sur, an East Passyunk Avenue entry that will feature playful menu items like Mexican-inspired pizza.
