Speak Freely with Kevin Sousa

KST Presents

Presented by Fygment Productions and KST

As part of an ongoing series of frank interviews, host Kit Mueller invites innovative leaders to share stories about building success. This month, Speak Freely welcomes Kevin Sousa.

A pioneering chef, Kevin has been repeatedly recognized by the James Beard Foundation (Best New Restaurant Semi-finalist, Best New Chef & Best Chef Mid-Atlantic Category nominations), and received accolades from local (Rising Star Chef & Chef of the Year – Pittsburgh Magazine) and national press (People’s Best New Chef – Food & Wine Magazine, Replanting the RustBelt – New York Times).

Kevin worked his way up from senior saucier at the Duquesne Club under chef Keith Coughenaur, to stints at Kaya and Soba under Chef Bill Fuller, then built his Alchemy menu as Exec Chef at Bigelow Grille, to his storied time at the Red Room cafe. He has gone on to launch several of Pittsburgh’s favorite restartaunts, including Salt of the Earth, Yo Rita Tacqueria, Union Pig & Chicken, and Station Street.

For his latest endeavor, he broke records with the level of support he garnered on Kickstarter for Superior Motors in Braddock.
