Ed Tinoco cooks and dresses with style. At the age of 28, he became the youngest chef to take the reins at Chicago’s finest restaurant, NEXT, offering a premier fine-dining experience with a new menu every month. When he’s not cooking, Ed is collecting, adding on to his extensive catalogue of fire kicks. From Tom Sachs Marsyards to classic Nike Blazers, Ed Tinoco is a big time sneakerhead. Despite not being in the thick of kitchen service that usually comes during the week, Ed and his fellow kitchenmates are still cheffing up meals to-go to help keep the restaurant flowing. Besides kitchen duties, Ed can be found in his apartment in Chicago still flexing with his many Supreme pieces and various limited sneakers and spending some quality time with his wife and dogs.
