“In 2013, Dale was given both a "People's Best New Chef" award from Food & Wine magazine, and a "Rising Star" award from StarChefs. Chef Dale was a part of a heart-warming fundraising benefit for the Philippines back when Typhoon Haiyan damaged part of the Philippines.”
“Food & Wine, New York Magazine and Brooklyn Magazine have all awarded the restaurant praise for its wings, dumplings and more. Talde also received a 4-star review from New York Magazine and three stars from Time Out New York.”
On top of his success, Chef Dale Talde teamed up with his fellow chefs to bring a benefit dinner for the devastating occurrence of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
