XIX: One of Edmonton's Premier Culinary Experiences
Sometimes just talking about the food isn't enough of an insight to an establishment's rating. At Viva Voce, we are all about the story so we took the time to chat with the guys down at XIX and find out what their story is...
Q: Who is the founder of XIX?
Al Prokop and Chef Andrew Fung
Q: What are some the inspirations that led to the inception of XIX?
Al is the owner of Blackhawk Golf Course, a private club, where Chef Andrew Fung was the head chef for eight years. Al and Andrew were inspired to open a restaurant where Andrew could share his talents for all to enjoy, not just members and member’s guests.
