CHEF IAN RUSSO IS BACK IN PHILADELPHIA !!!!
Brooklyn, NY native Chef Ian Russo has spent years refining his craft in some of the world’s best kitchens. Chef Ian began his professional career with stints at La Reserve and Le Chantilly. He then crossed the ocean to work with many world renowned and celebrated chefs in France and Belgium. He got his first taste of Hawaii at famed Roy’s in Honolulu, then donned a toque at Bouley and Lespinasse in New York City.
After years in top rated kitchens, Chef Russo opened his eponymous restaurant on the Upper East Side in New York City and soon his Dirty Drunken Ribeye was honored with New York Magazine’s Best Steak in the City Award.
Chef Russo has now taken that steak and transformed it into the award-winning DirtyBurger®, bringing it and his signature style Dirty Cooking® to West Tavern as he, his kitchen team and service staff prepare to spice up the Philadelphia food scene.
I believe in putting my love and passion for food and service on every plate. Dirty® is my style of living and my style of cooking.It’s a combination of love, life, passion and a way of being. My refined techniques are simple: live each day to the fullest, passionately care, share with those around you, smile, feel and express happiness.
Live Dirty, Love Dirty, Be Dirty™.
