Chris & Alicia


 Chris & Alicia, In the last 17 years of their marriage, they've lived in 3 different countries, 8 different cities including, Seoul, Los Angeles, and Qingdao. As exhilarating as it was, the two were ready to slow down. When searching for their final destination, in addition to considering the fact that this would be a bit more long term than their usual stay, they were searching for somewhere they could create dishes for both their neighbors and customers. Upon seeing the cobblestone streets of Philadelphia's Old City, they knew that the search was over.
