Alden in old English means “old friend” – and it also happens to be chef Jared Hucks’ middle name. So it only made sense that a restaurant celebrating the “convivial feeling of being amongst old friends” would take on the eponym. Chef Hucks’ is inspired by his travels around the world and here in Atlanta – along Buford Highway’s multicultural corridor. With eclectic dishes based on seasonality, make the trip to Chamblee and visit under-the-radar The Alden!
