Chef Eddie G's Kitchen
EAST HARLEM, NYC – Chef Eddie G. recently cooked alongside White House Chef Guy Mitchell, on Saturday March 19th at Chef Eddie G’s Kitchen 1664 Park Ave, New York, NY 10035 (117th/118th St.)
New York native Chef Eddie Gallagher opened his first New York City eatery in what used to be an unlikely place for culinary ventures. Mr. Gallagher designed the East Harlem establishment, Chef Eddie G’s Kitchen to feel like part home, part industrial. The stainless steel tables and exposed brick fit right in with neighboring East Harlem manufacturing zone, but the Chef’s warm hospitality and open kitchen format are as welcoming as a trip back home.
East Harlem, a neighborhood in constant transition since the mid-1800s, has been home to a myriad of cultures and ethnicities. Similarly, Mr. Gallagher’s collects flavors and learns the palates of all the places he continuously travels. Chef Eddie G. participates in more than thirty Food Festivals world-wide, per year. The atmosphere of The Kitchen is very much Northeast American, but the softer touches of the MENU echo with Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asian flavors. The dishes have resonated with locals and city explorers alike. Chef Eddie G. explains, “Our diners are so diverse, but they all seem to enjoy these hints of flavors, because being a diner in New York City is a fascinating way to learn about different cultures.”
The American steakhouse style menu of The Kitchen is everything East Harlem has been missing in its culinary landscape. And Chef Eddie G’s recipes are just what American steakhouse dishes need to truly make them New York dishes. But no cooking is more American than that of a White House Chef. Chef Guy Mitchell has served up brilliant gastronomy to Presidents, world leaders and professional sports teams. On March 19th, Chef Mitchell and Chef Eddie G. cooked alongside each other, remixing menu items and trying out some new dishes on diners.
These two big personalities bring out the character of every dish firing from the kitchen. No strangers to cameras either, Chef Eddie G. and Chef Guy Mitchell always turn on the Food Festival celebrity charm, bringing a new wave of restaurant hospitality to East Harlem.
