CULINARY EDGE
A NOTE ON CO-FOUNDER

  C H E F  A N D R E W  B L A C K 

Chef Andrew Black has created an incredible concept as the Co-Founder and Executive Chef for Culinary Edge. This triple-restaurant concept consists of three separate restaurant experiences in one space in Deep Deuce that includes La Baguette Deep Deuce, Black Walnut, and Grey Sweater
A native of Jamaica, Chef Black grew up around constant cooking and fresh food, which sparked his passion for food. In 2007, he was invited to move to Oklahoma City to reopen the Skirvin as Executive Chef. Chef Black then went on to play a key role in the culinary operations and spearheading the development and opening of Flint and Vast. Now, Culinary Edge is pushing the boundaries of the dining experience, and Chef Black could not be more excited to be a part of that revolution.

I enjoy meeting friends and colleagues at Flower and Flour for a hot cup of coffee, then browsing their selection of coffee beans, flowers, and gifts. It's a perfect local spot, right in our neighborhood, to visit any time. We're glad they are a part of Deep Deuce.

When I have an afternoon or evening to relax, my favorite place to eat is at Barrios because the vibes and margaritas are so good. Plus, dinner and a drink are best enjoyed on their patio.

 P L A Y 
On the weekends, I love to explore Myriad Gardens and make memories with my daughter, Olivia. We are looking forward to the nice weather and blooming flowers that come along with spring.
