Alex Crabb

Asta, Boston

After an impressive seven-year run in the kitchen of L’Espalier and a turn at Noma, chef Alex Crabb has created one of Boston’s hottest spots, Asta, where he celebrates the bounty of New England’s agrarian renaissance with an ingredient-driven approach and whimsical presentations.
