Greek Inspired Chef / Brewer


Death Ave's chef, brewer and operator, Michael Tzezailidis takes a playful approach at fusing the American and Hellenic culinary experience. Being a born and raised New Yorker of Hellenic descent, Michael takes great pride in the taste and presentation of his traditionally inspired dishes. "We want our dishes to please the eye, intrigue the curious mind and to be outright addictive. Growing up in a 1st generation Greek household meant we spent way too much time in the kitchen. From watching, to helping, to cooking, to arguing about cooking; my mother, father, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and cousins have an ongoing yet silent competition when it comes to the kitchen. These are the ongoing comical pleasures for my family and I. I love it and I associate cooking with some of my most most memorable moments. As for the beer, it is literally nothing more than an extension of my kitchen; just another bowl of soup. So, expect the beer to be delicious!"
