ICA: Symon vs. Nunez

symon banner ICA: Symon vs. YagihashiIron Chef Michael Symon faces off against challenger Jesus Nunez. Chef Núñez is chef and owner of Gastroarte Restaurant in New York. The judges are Jose Andres, Cady Huffman, Andrew Zimmern and Sophie Michell.

Chef Jesus NunezThe menu at Gastroarte Restaurant showcases rich, imaginative cooking with a focus on simple yet robust flavors and also reflects Chef Núñez’ youthful history as a graffiti and fine artist. In the kitchen, he draws inspiration from his love of urban design and street art, designing his dishes to be colorful creations that many diners say are “too beautiful to eat.” The stage for these edible works of art offers its diners two unique dining experiences.

Chef Núñez’ passion for fusing old-world recipes with new-world preparations is to say the least artistic but in Kitchen Stadium awaits Michael Symon as the two collide in Battle Octopus.  Be sure to check out my exclusive interview with Iron Chef Symon HERE.
