CHEF YEHUDA SICHEL
Born in Elkins Park, PA and raised in Baltimore, Chef Sichel is a graduate of the Jerusalem School of Kosher Culinary Arts. Upon his return to the States, he spent time in the kitchen of Grace Restaurant in L.A. before returning to Philly to work under legendary Chef George Perrier at Brasserie Perrier.
In 2010, Chef Sichel came to work for Chef Michael Solomonov at CookNSolo’s groundbreaking modern Israeli restaurant Zahav. He quickly rose to the rank of sous chef, becoming Solomonov’s kitchen confidant for the next several years.
In 2014, Chef Sichel began making his own culinary mark at the helm of Abe Fisher. Every evening he executes a menu that pulls together centuries-old flavors that range from Budapest to Montreal to Brooklyn, creating a meal and an atmosphere that both modernizes and elevates the long-familiar classics of Jewish soul food. Nowhere is this effort more rewarded than in his now signature dish – the Montreal Short Ribs – which Food Republic called “smoked meat nirvana”.
