Brad Spence

Ah, Philadelphia: the city is beautiful, the people are honest, and the food scene is unreal. One of the people responsible for this is Brad Spence, who helms Philadelphia's finest trattoria, Amis. Brad's food is influenced by dishes you would find in casual restaurants in Rome. And like any good American chef, Brad takes those old standbys and expands on them, drawing inspiration from the wonderful food he finds in the City of Brotherly Love.

For this episode of Munchies, he brought us on a culinary adventure with his sous chef, Craig Parahus, and his brother-in-law, Kevin Griffin. They introduced us to Peter McAndrews and Han Chiang, two colorful characters who could best described as the Andrew Dice Clays of Philly's restaurant scene. Buon Appetito.
