PEORIA HEIGHTS, IL (08/28/2017) –The Kim Group, Ltd and the owners of 4500 Prospect, MK Enterprises, are excited to announce Edge by Chef Dustin Allen will be relocating to 4500 N Prospect in Peoria Heights, IL.
“I am excited to move to the Heights and be part of the culinary scene and energy going on in the Peoria Heights.” Chef Dustin Allen.
Chef Allen has been a restaurateur for 18 years, honing his craft to great acclaim from critics and diners alike, from the Carolinas, Virginia Beach, Springfield, and here in Peoria. He has worked for years to showcase food from multiple cultures and regions, always refining classical techniques, always exploring their modern vision, his restaurants always sustained by gracious service. Chef Allen’s cooking, spontaneous and market driven, will continue to be the focus in this new location.
In its current location for the last four years, Edge flourished and rapidly gained a reputation as the area’s top dining destination. Chef Allen is looking forward to moving to the “Culinary Corridor of Central Illinois” by taking a premier corner location in the newest development in Peoria Heights, located at 4500 N Prospect Road. The interior design of Edge was a team effort with The Kim Group, a Restauranteur Consultant out of Chicago, local designer - Abigail Lauren Design, and craftsmen - Whiskey City Design, in creating an excellent dining experience that will raise the standard for restaurants in Peoria. Directed by the sounds of blues guitars and instrumental free jazz, a concept was created that plays with light, movement, and texture, allowing Chef Dustin's cuisine to play the lead at his new location, developed by The Kim Group. Whether you prefer to plan an evening in the dining room or duck-in off the street for a drink in the lounge, Edge is sure to impress.
The Kim Group, Ltd, who developed Trefzgers Bakery’s new location in Peoria Heights and Cooperage 214 in Peoria’s Warehouse District, is excited to announce the first tenant of the 4500 Prospect Development. “We started the design process with a list of musicians that Chef selected which portrayed how he wanted guests to feel during their experience and the team took off with that inspiration.” Katie Kim stated, “We are excited to bring a new dining experience to Peoria Heights to complement the existing culinary scene.”
Edge is scheduled to be open at their new location in Peoria Heights on November 1st, 2017.
