Beats and Eats

It's a Holiday Edition of Beats & Eats.

On this Christmas Eve, Nick Gelso travels to Brookline for a Holiday tour of The Washington Square Tavern. This is a "return visit" of sorts, as Gelso visited with The Tavern back in November, talking with BNE2, Chef Barret about his POPUP dinner. The POPUP was a resounding success and today, we speak with the Tavern's Executive Chef Kevin Des Chenes.

In addition to his work at this great Gastro Eatery, Chef Kevin has been making waves all over the Celebrity Chef circuit with his appearances on, Food Network's Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell and The Celebrity Stage at The Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival. Surrounding all of Kevin's recent success, is his great passion and devotion to charity. It's always been quite impactful to me that the culinary community always makes a priority to give back to those who are suffering or less fortunate. As you'll hear in today's episode of Beats and Eats, Kevin's current charity is one that is very close to mine and Ty's heart, Michelle's Place for Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. Our association coincides with Chef Kevin's via Gillian Larson, and her Reality Rally Charity weekend in Temecula, California. Chef Kev explains why charity is so important to him and why he's working so hard to raise funds for Reality Rally/Michelle's Place.

Additionally, we speak about the Holiday Season at Washington Square Tavern in Brookline. Chef Kevin talks about the great things happening at the Tavern on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and, of course, New Years Eve.

Lastly, we spend a portion of time discussing the restaurant industry, the US Foods - Sysco merger, and how it will impact the independent operators, and general best practices in the BOH of a well-established, bustling Gastro Tavern in Boston.
