1 Barbecue everything at Smokejack BBQ Housed in a charming 180-year-old building in the heart of historic Alpharetta, SMOKEJACK BBQ has something for all barbecue lovers. From slow-smoked, hand-pulled Pork and moist tender Ribs to their signature Beef Burnt Ends, they honor many regional styles while preparing great barbecue. Listen to live local music each week while you sip on craft beer from local breweries. Oh, and try the Triple Bypass Fries for the ultimate indulgence. uSMOKEJACKBBQ.COM

2 Classic deep dish pizza at Nancy’s Chicago Pizza New Yorkers and Chicagoans have been debating which city has the best pizza for decades. Whether you are a fan of deep-dish pizza or not, there is no denying that NANCY’S CHICAGO PIZZA makes a truly delicious pie. When Rocco Palese modeled his new pizza creation after his mother’s recipe for “scarciedda,” an Easter specialty cake, little did he know the result would be one of the first stuffed pizzas in America. Be sure to try Uncle Carl’s Favorite made with pepperoni and hot giardiniera, or Vinnie’s Choice, stuffed with Italian sausage, pepperoni, and roasted red peppers. Not a fan of deep-dish pizza? No worries! Nancy’s has a create-your-own option with traditional or thin-crust dough and a large selection of toppings to choose from. uNANCYSPIZZA.COM

3 Clean eating at Grace 17•20 With the goal of presenting a unique dining experience that uplifts and inspires guests, GRACE 17•20 offers a creative, seasonal menu in a comfortable and stylish atmosphere. For diners adhering to a “clean” diet, options for eating out are difficult to find, but Grace 17•20 has an entire menu designed with vegetarians, vegans, and clean eaters in mind. Dishes like Coconut Curried Kale and the Grilled Portobello Burger with eggplant and basil oil are sure to please any palate, while wellness teas and fresh juices hydrate with a dose of healthful benefits. uGRACE1720.COM


4 The romantic oasis of Whisky Mistress Journey into a world of retro elegance at WHISKY MISTRESS where classic style reigns supreme. Whether you’re searching for a gathering place with friends, a romantic oasis, or an exciting late-night adventure, WM promises an in-house getaway in Atlanta’s backyard (aka Buckhead). Stop in for the gourmet dining with live music every night performed by Atlanta’s best artists. The small-plate menu features like Broiled Feta topped with marinara and Basil Pesto with grilled pita are perfect for sharing, but substantial enough to satisfy. uWHISKYMISTRESS.COM

5 Symphony of tastes and sounds at Madlife Stage & Studios Veteran Atlanta Chef David Berry subscribes to the notion that “what goes together, grows together.” As a music lover, he tries to create harmony with both flavor and sound as he crafts nightly specials to complement the music being performed at MADLIFE STAGE & STUDIOS’ live venue. Depending on the guest artist and their style of music, Chef David has been known to serve Southern classics—with some twists and shouts—including an amazing Pulled Pork Sandwich, meats smoked in-house, and fresh seafood, all coupled with delicious breads and desserts made in-house daily. uMADLIFESTAGEANDSTUDIOS.COM

Wine Wednesdays at Village Tavern Included for the fourth consecutive year in Wine Spectator’s annual restaurant awards for their outstanding wine service, VILLAGE TAVERN , located in Alpharetta, is the perfect place to celebrate Wine Wednesdays (or any other day for that matter). And what’s even better than deals on wine? An award-worthy patio from which to drink it. Village Tavern boasts one of the best in the city, perfect for peoplewatching, lingering at happy hour, or toasting good times with friends. uVILLAGETAVERN.COM



7 Olive oil for every kitchen at Oli + Ve Olive oil has become a staple of every kitchen. In fact, most cooks keep more than one variety on hand. Whether for dipping, frying, or dressing salads, OLI + VE has a wide selection from Italy, Spain, Tunisia, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and California. At any of their three Atlanta locations, customers can taste before purchasing. Along with featured oils, they carry vinegars of varying types as well as gourmet food items like gluten-free pastas, olives imported from Spain, flavored salts, and spice blends. Building a gourmet gift basket is easy and fun—and might even include a bread board or dipping bowls handcrafted from French olive wood. uOLIANDVE.COM

Year-round alfresco dining at WAHOO! Grill Have you ever imagined a glass-walled garden where you can dine outside any time of year? WAHOO! GRILL in Decatur certainly did. They have designed an enchanting garden paradise that can accommodate intimate dining, a gathering of friends, or even private parties of up to 200. This casual Europeaninfluenced neighborhood eatery offers a creative menu with a focus on seafood and fresh, locally sourced ingredients prepared with a Southern flair. And be sure to stop into Wahoo! Wine and Provisions for a great wine selection and a free wine tasting every Saturday. uWAHOOGRILLDECATUR.COM


9 Dueling pianos and Spanish tapas at Red Sky “We want our customers to feel at home here,” says Terry Kirby, co-owner of RED SKY TAPAS AND BAR as he sweeps an arm in the direction of the open dining area and well-lit bar. They offer a new twist on the traditional Spanish tapas menu here; one example is their version of Cajun Shrimp and Grits made with large tender shrimp dotted with tomatoes, roasted red peppers, jalapeños, and cilantro atop creamy grits with just the right amount of Cajun seasoning. And no evening here would be complete without their signature martini, The Desperate Housewife—an impeccable combination of vodka, peach Schnapps, and cranberry juice with a splash of fresh lime. But the real catch at Red Sky Tapas and Bar is their “dueling pianos” every Friday and Saturday evening. Jumpin’ jivin’, it’s a good time. uREDSKYTAPAS.COM


Regal dining at Crispina As you stroll into CRISPINA , you will be charmed by the simple and elegant décor with hardwood floors, timbered furniture, and gold draperies.

Whether you choose one of the crisp, savory pizzas or the hand-rolled pasta dishes, you will dine like the Roman empress after which the restaurant is named. When you visit Crispina in Smryna—or their hotly anticipated new location in East Cobb—ask for the Calabrese oil to drizzle on your homemade bread for a spicy addition to your authentic Italian meal. uCRISPINAATLANTA.COM



Artisan finds at No Mas! Cantina Serving delicious Mexican fare in a delightful atmosphere decorated with artisan furnishings, NO MAS! CANTINA offers unique regional dishes like the skewered Shrimp Alambres, or grilled Bistek Tamarindo. Love the hand-blown glass holding your margarita? Pick up one or two in the attached Artisan Market featuring eclectic treasures from places like Guatemala and Mexico. No Mas! Cantina isn’t just a restaurant; it’s an amazing experience. With its central downtown location, this is a great hangout spot before or after concerts, Hawks games, and Falcons games in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. uNOMASCANTINA.COM

Start with a pastry from Little Tart Bakery, then grab a grinder from Fred’s Meat & Bread and a brew from Hop City Beer & Wine to wash them down. Finish it all with a scoop from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. A world of foodie delights await under one high-ceilinged roof. uKROGSTREETMARKET.COM

Landmark RESTAURANTS Decade-old Atlanta MAINSTAYS

15 The Silver Skillet’s biscuits While this restaurant has been featured in many movies—not to mention Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” for its vintage décor, it’s the classic Southern breakfast that keeps folks coming back time and time again. Owned and operated by the Decker family and their descendants for over 60 years, they know a thing or two about cooking up some biscuits, country ham, and red-eye gravy. You haven’t had a true Southern breakfast until you’ve dined at THE SILVER SKILLET ! uTHESILVERSKILLET.COM

16 Tapas at Basil’s in Buckhead BASIL’S RESTAURANT AND TAPAS BAR

17 Classic French cuisine in the Heart of Buckhead at Anis Bistro As French food continues to trend upward in 2017, there is no better place to find classic Provençal fare than at ANIS BISTRO . Set in a converted cottage nestled in the heart of Buckhead, this has been one of Atlanta’s hidden gems for over 23 years. Anis is the perfect place for a romantic lunch or dinner, especially if you’re lucky enough to snag a table on the tree-shaded brick patio. The specialties are Provençal versions of healthy French cuisine, like their juicy Thyme-Roasted Chicken in jus or the unpretentious Hanger Steak with pommes frites. With food and wine that is affordably priced, you can feel like a Parisian without the expense and nuisance of overseas travel. uANISBISTRO.COM


Beer paired with wood-fired fare at Max Lager’s With rustic seating amid giant copper tanks and mechanized milieus, MAX LAGER’S WOOD-FIRED GRILL & BREWERY is the oldest independent

brewery and restaurant in Atlanta. In addition to being the oldest brewpub in the city, they were also one of the first restaurants to feature a wood-fired menu. And boy, do they do it well. One taste of the House-Smoked Hickory Pork Chop served with whipped potatoes and jalapeño gravy will convince you that cooking with wood enhances the Max Lager’s experience by introducing bold flavors which cannot be duplicated with traditional cooking methods. Paired with a Dark Side India Dark Ale, you might ask for a bunk in the industrial loft-style building so you never have to leave. uMAXLAGERS.COM

19 The new Breakfast Burger at Downwind This family restaurant has been serving some of Atlanta’s “best burgers” for 27 years.

The hottest menu trend of late is deluxe charcuterie boards laden with cheeses and cured meats, so you can imagine the pleasures that await you at a restaurant solely dedicated to serving the best Southern artisanal ingredients sourced from local purveyors. SALTWOOD CHARCUTERIE & BAR , located in the Loews’ Midtown Hotel, combines European style with homey hospitality to provide diners with a casual, communal dining experience.

“Star-gazing” at STK Atlanta This glitzy Midtown space boasts an elevated dining room awash in chic white leather.

Perhaps it’s the in-house DJ or the incredible Shellfish Platter large enough for the entire table that attracts the entertainment community to STK ATLANTA . Whatever the allure, you might see Denzel Washington, Selena Gomez, Scarlett Johansson, Owen Wilson, Kevin Bacon, Cam Newton, Bill Paxton, Kim Kardashian, NeNe Leaks, or even Arnold Schwarzenegger at this upscale steakhouse.

The delicious fare is complemented by an outstanding wine selection. Great location, good food, and stellar wine—who could ask for more? uCAMPAGNOLOATL.COM


Gastropub share plates at Tap

Gastropub cuisine is, for the most part, tried and true: myriad burgers, smothered fries, kicked-up nachos, sliders, salads, etc. But at TAP , Chef Tyler Williams is capsizing the concept with share plates—or as he calls them, “fun food.” Grab some friends and gather ‘round a plate of Yakitori Short Ribs or Beef and Chicken Tinga Empanadas. Even the desserts—and we’re slaves to the Caramel Apple Bread Pudding—are generous enough to share. If your appetite is big enough, you can still get your own Loaded Tots or Double Stock Pub Burger. But sharing is caring, right? uTAPAT1180.COM



Chef-driven menu at Eclectic Bistro When self-taught Chef Justin Caldarella met his wife, little did he know that he would get married and build a restaurant from the ground up in less than a year. Needing an artistic outlet, Caldarella left his corporate job to put his creative talents to good use crafting traditional American dishes with a refreshingly modern twist at ECLECTIC BISTRO . Reflecting true bistro roots, the concept offers delicious, reasonably priced dishes made fresh daily and served in a casual and relaxing atmosphere. Another perk: Eclectic Bistro is located near some of the city’s most popular attractions, like the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Piedmont Park, and the Belt Line. uECLECTICBISTROATLANTA.COM

Indulge your senses with delectable PEI Mussels and Kale Salad with bourbon-soaked cherries, slivered almonds, and a honey-citrus gastrique; or dig into a hearty Maple Leaf Farms Cassoulet. Looking for something a bit more adventurous? How about the slow-braised and hand-pulled Duck Confit Tacos with guacamatillo salsa and jicama-cabbage slaw tucked inside fresh corn tortillas? With shows and classes nightly, this spot truly has something for everyone. uCITYWINERY.COM/ATLANTA


Curated cocktails at Establishment

Chef in action at ONE. midtown kitchen




How visionaries ANTHONY FORTSON and ROB WALLER are reinvigorating downtown BY J E F F R E Y ST E E N

To those in the know, the pulse of Atlanta is undeniably Peachtree Street—a stretch of downtown bustling with dazzling retail, towering businesses, and a rainbow of entertainment. Wherever you land on this happening strip, you’re mere blocks away from iconic hotels like The Atlanta Marriott Marquis, The Hyatt Regency, and the W Atlanta, while landmark institutions Hard Rock Cafe, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Coca-Cola Museum are easily accessible by foot. 22

With all of this activity, where better to open a world-class restaurant? That was Anthony Fortson’s thought, anyway, when he converted the ill-fated Scales 925 to destination restaurant and event center The League Tavern. “When I heard that the space was available, I realized I had to do something with it,” Fortson recalls. “The area is perfect, and while I had dabbled in restaurants and nightclubs around Atlanta before, I wanted this concept to be completely different.” Fortson’s vision was simple: Craft a multilevel lifestyle hub with unquestionably delicious food and an atmosphere so comfortable, guests would linger for hours. To that end, he delivered what downtown Atlanta needed most—a venue ringed with soft earth tones, cozy banquettes, and dozens of high-definition, big-screen TVs. “We’re not really a sports bar,” Fortson is quick to point out. “Of course, we’re set up perfectly for that if guests want—we even have a nine-screen, 4K TV wall behind the (full) bar on the first floor, after all—but people are just as likely to come for a leisurely meal and conversation.” The first floor, by the way—including an 800 square-foot patio—is only one part of The League Tavern adventure. Private events, organized by the tangential business The League Events, will spread over the second, third, and fourth floors, marked by specialty menus, full bars on each level, and custom luxury touches. The fourth floor—a rooftop patio—will be particularly in demand, as views mingle with high-end cocktails, enjoying exclusive amenities and updated American fare, created by Executive Chef Robert Waller. While Waller has been keen on crafting specialty menus for private events, his focus is equally on the public-facing League Tavern. “The menu is all about fusion fare,” Waller paints, “but the food will still be familiar and comfortable.” Case in point: The visionary Steak Roll that blends traditional sushi preparation with classic Southern ingredients. A lean cut of prime beef is glazed with lime barbecue sauce before rolling up tender julienned veggies. In addition to the fusion, Waller insists that creative whimsy will be happily balanced by small plate offerings and main dishes that have long been hits in Atlanta. Leaning on his unique talents and Southern roots, Waller is blending new ideas with traditional Southern flavors. “Our Cajun


Chicken Pasta is a great example of a classic dish,” Waller says, “but it’s not boring. Far from it—we’re keeping it light with well-executed flavors so that it’s satisfying without being too heavy.” Waller says he’s also currently working on building purveyor relationships so that the menu’s weekly specials showcase the best Atlanta has to offer. “We’re reaching out to butchers and farmers to help us build an inventory of local product,” he says. But perhaps one of the most endearing things about the menu—and certainly a feather in Fortson’s cap—is the price point. Full entrées top out at $16, while smalls plates run an eminently reasonable $5 or so. “This really gives guests flexibility when they order,” Waller affirms. “You can mix and match small plates, share an entrée, or get an appetizer, main, and dessert without breaking the bank.”

If you’re sliding into a League Tavern booth for the first time, both Fortson and Waller recommend some signatures to get you started: the Chicken and Waffles are a must in a Southern kitchen, while the Wings and Fries fit any sports-viewing festivity. “And I have to add the Macaroni and Cheese and Deep-Fried Baby Back Ribs to the list,” Waller grins. “They’re irresistable.” To anyone in tune with the complexities of getting a concept like this off the ground, the key to its success is passion. And as Waller describes, The League Tavern has it in spades: “I’m really proud of the guys in the kitchen,” he gushes. “They’re really passionate about making the food, and it shows in everything from prep to plating.” If the kitchen shines, then the front-of-the-house team gleams. Led by hospitality expert—and The League Tavern’s General Manager—Josh Black, every server, bartender, and host in the dining room is committed to making an experience

“I’m really PROUD of the guys in the kitchen. They’re really about making the food, and it SHOWS in everything from PREP TO PLATING .” — EXECUTIVE CHEF ROB WALLER



at the Tavern a memorable pastiche of smiles, laughter, and detail-oriented service. With four sprawling levels spanning 14,000 square-feet, an enviable location in the heart of downtown, a menu pulsing with creativity from an energetic kitchen team, and Atlanta’s warmest hospitality, could there be anything else to ensure The League Tavern’s success? “Well,” Fortson nudges, “we do have a few more things in the works. We’re hoping to open a luxury cigar bar for League Tavern members at some point. And we’re looking forward to offering live music and doing periodic liquor tastings. Oh, and did I mention we’re open for lunch, and will soon offer delivery to the neighborhood?” Such ambition is often rewarded with success. And for Fortson, Jackson, and their team, that success will be undoubtedly well-plied with good food and lust-worthy drink

The specialties are Provençal versions of Mediterranean cuisine, and the atmosphere is reminiscent of that region, especially if you’re lucky enough to snag a table on the tree-shaded patio.”—New York Times #2 Best French Food—Best of Citysearch, 2007

What is now the gem of Atlanta—Little Italia—began as a humble pizza spot envisioned by restaurateur Giovanni di Palma. Featured in countless magazines and newspapers, and recently lauded as one of the top pizzas restaurants in the country by “Best. Pizza. Ever.” on The Food Network, Antico Pizza is the very soul of Neapolitan pizza-making. Anchored by three wood-burning ovens—the only way to do Old World pizza right—Antico started a trend for fast-casual, but high-quality pizza stops. Inside, guests can cozy up to communal tables with a glass or two of wine and dig into a classic pie, like the Bianca with fior di latte, ricotta, bufala mozzarella, and pecorino; or one of the much-loved favorites like the San Gennaro with salsiccia, sweet red pepper, bufala mozzarella, and cipollini onions. If you’d rather, pick a piping hot, crispy calzone, also cooked up in the wood-burning ovens. Save room for Homemade Cannoli, though, made fresh daily, and be sure to plan out your next visit carefully—Antico makes pizza until the dough runs out.

Created by Chef Leif Johnson, Bellwoods Social House offers a casual dining experience to Atlanta’s up-and-coming Westside. Uniquely named—and extremely delicious—eats fill up the menu like Gangsta Fries loaded with bleu cheese two-ways and crispy bacon and their “Hog Toes”—also known as Peppadew Poppers—stuffed with housemade pimento cheese, rolled in panko, and deep-fried, then served on top of tomato-bacon jam. And when you are craving a messy delicious burger, look no further than the Bellwoods Animal Style Burger, stacked with two shortrib and brisket patties, bacon, caramelized onions, B&B pickles, American cheese, and a hearty slathering of “Animal Sauce”—the chef’s nod to one of his favorite “secrets” from living on the West Coast. Atlanta brunchers can also find solace here, with a selection of Southern-inspired dishes such as the Waffles and Wings—a Belgian-style waffle with your choice of fresh flavored butters and infused maple syrups served with wings, tossed in your choice of sauce … or naked—as well as a full build your own Bloody Mary bar. Before you head to the aquarium, watch a game at Turner Field, or catch a show at The Fox Theater, get your fill at Bellwoods Social House for some seriously delicious eats.

Sweet Potato Fries 8 Colossal Grilled Asparagus 8 Chef’s Market and Find 8 Food and Beverage Director Alexander Busch Alexander Busch has earned a great reputation creating perfect American cuisine at Sear, yet his culinary roots were initially honed in his hometown of Baden Baden, Germany. In 1991, after completing his apprenticeship diploma and earning a certificate of military services, Alexander took up residence west of the Atlantic, displaying his culinary skills in Miami, Puerto Rico, and New York City before settling in Atlanta in 1999. Today, as the Executive Chef of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, he oversees all four of the hotel’s restaurants, including Sear and High Velocity, a sports bar that specializes in finely crafted pub cuisine.



At Sun in My Belly, it’s all about the experience. From sips of tea to elegant dining fit for a special occasion, this is one treat you’ll not want to miss. Quintessentially European, the restaurant prides itself on being a place where friends and family can gather, business moguls can pour over emails, and romantic dates can be had in just the right ambience. A breezy open-air patio sets the stage for relaxed afternoons and evenings, while Supperclub menus entice with prix-fixe offerings ranging from cioppino to risotto. When the appetite surges, there’s little Sun in My Belly can’t satiate: breakfast is simple and elegant, Lite Bites feed the passing craving, sandwiches satisfy at the peak of the day, and Big Bites are fit to linger over at the close of day. Executive Chef Alison Lueker is in love with the art of food—and gives each dish visually astounding presentations. Nature-driven fare and the same keen eye for art extends into the catering side of Sun in My Belly, which feeds the celebrations and events of many Atlantans— whether the occasion calls for small bites or complete sit-down meals. Some might say Sun in My Belly has caused a culinary stir in Atlanta, making it an out-and-out phenomenon; others say it’s just an experience to be enjoyed, again and again, any time of day, any time of year. Isn’t it time you experienced it for yourself?

Welcome to Varuni Napoli—where each bite transports you to the beautiful streets of Naples.

From the familiar streets of Midtown Atlanta, Varuni Napoli transports diners to

another world and a different time—where family is paramount, food is ever-present, and the kitchen is the center of activity. Here, family recipes dominate the menu and seasonality dictates the dishes. If you’re craving a bit of true, Old World Napoli, begin your feast with some of Mamma Varuni’s meatballs, or share a plate of Eggplant Parmesan as you sip on a spicy Chianti. Chef and Owner Luca Varuni wants you to experience everything about Italian food culture, after all—from the first bite of a wood-fired Margherita pizza to laughter ringing ‘round the table. Guests should know that every diner is treated as a member of the Varuni family from the moment they walk in the door. The energetic and hospitable Varuni Napoli team keeps the atmosphere active, even treating guests twice a week to “Pop Up Pasta,” a surprise, complimentary serving of housemade pasta from the Varuni family cookbook. The daily menu and weekly pizza specials at Varuni Napoli feature only the finest ingredients. Expect to find a myriad of Italian imports such as San Marzano tomatoes, Italian olives, cold-pressed olive oil, doppio zero flour, and a wide variety of artisan cheeses and salumi, alongside fresh, locally sourced ingredients that blend Italian culture and Southern charm, much like Varuni himself. If you can’t make it in to enjoy a meal with the Varuni family, order online and savor a true Neapolitan pizza at home—made to order when you order, and not a minute before. In every way, for every meal, Luca and his staff want only the best for their guests. Or, as he puts it, “… to share the past, present and future of authentic Neapolitan cuisine with you.” Saluti! 56

It may seem strange to have a spot named BB’s Bronx Bagels on the outskirts of Atlanta, but it truly has found a home in Alpharetta. BB’s launched in 2007 as the brainchild of Owners Anna and Eddie Siino. Natives of New York, they found their hand-rolled, kettle-boiled bagels were extremely popular—so popular, in fact, that they decided to launch their own business. With these delicious bagels as the centerpiece of the menu, the Siinos created sandwiches that pay homage to

The restaurant is lauded for its architecture and style, carrying a distinct flair—bathed in the warm glow

of low-hanging lamps over very distinct colonial furniture. At the same time, the space is casual, fun, and festive. The signature dish is the Molcajete Texano, made with grilled cactus (yes, cactus), grilled steak, grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, grilled onions, molcajete salsa, black beans, Mexican sausage, and fresh tortillas. It takes 10-20 minutes to prepare to perfection, but it’s completely worth the wait. While you’re waiting, try one of the signature drinks—the Organic Margarita, made with fresh lime juice and organic agave nectar; the Jose Margarita, made with premium tequila and a secret recipe; or just one 150 tequilas from the modern, fully loaded bar.

ATLANTA LIVING How THE SHED’S JUSTIN DIXON found his inspiration—and his notoriety

When Justin Dixon talks about his past, it’s laced with an attractive humility—a simple collection of stories and happenstances that led, ultimately, to his place at the helm of The Shed in Glenwood. But Dixon’s story paints a picture not just of his own journey, but of Atlanta and its dynamic culinary growth through the years. DiningOut sat down with the veteran chef recently for a little of our own inspiration—and a peak into the future. DININGOUT: Some chefs claim that they found the kitchen as infants before they could learn to walk. Is that your story? CHEF DIXON: [Laughs] Not quite. I started cooking when I was seven, largely because I grew up in a family of cooks—my mom, my dad, my aunt. My mom would cook daily meals, but my aunt was the one in charge of big feasts like those for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I started washing dishes and chopping vegetables for her early on.

What was the first complete meal you made by yourself? I dabbled in breakfast before any other meal. So, my first creation was scrambled eggs, sausage, and Eggo waffles. And after you had moved on to other meals, what was your repertoire? Well, as it turns out, my mom worked two shifts, so I began cooking for the family out of necessity when I was about 11 or 12. And my meals weren’t gourmet—canned veggies, pasta, macaroni and cheese. Stuff a 12-year-old could handle. When did you finally venture out into restaurant kitchens? I started off at Subway in high school, but after graduating and moving on to the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at Pano’s and Paul’s—a French restaurant with a loyal following. I’m assuming you moved beyond sandwich making there? Eventually. I started making sandwiches and desserts, then eventually moved up to the fry station, where I fried lobster tails. Lots and lots of lobster tails. Did you eventually move to a different station? Actually, I moved to a different restaurant. I

needed new challenges. So, I started at Spice Market in the W Hotel. It was an Asian fusion concept, and I was able to work every station. The whole restaurant was completely different; Pano’s and Paul’s was French, and Spice Market was this medley of Thai, Vietnamese, Cantonese, and Indian cuisines. It was a 180-degree shift. Was there something in particular about that experience that spoke to you? We were cooking Asian cuisine, but we were using a lot of the French techniques I learned at Pano’s and Paul’s. I enjoyed that combination. I also got a good sense of cleanliness and organization. And while I loved it, they let me go in 2010 because the economy was tanking. What did you do to get yourself back on your feet? At that time in Atlanta, there were probably 100 cooks for every job. And as I didn’t have much experience, things were really tough. So I bounced around casual restaurants until I finally started working at Yeah! Burger. At that time, burger joints were all the range—Yeah! even had a line out the door when they first opened. One thing I learned there was that food doesn’t have to be so serious. You can still put out top-notch food without sending it out to white tablecloth dining rooms with tuxedo servers. From there, I moved to Alabama for a bit to get away, and to find some new inspiration. I worked at a restaurant called Roux—a Cajun-Creole concept. It reinvigorated me so much—the fresh ingredients, the culinary creativity—that I decided to move back to Atlanta and pursue my dream of being a chef in my own kitchen. At this point, you had enough experience to land some serious positions in Atlanta, I imagine. Yeah, I was much more experienced. I started



working at a restaurant called Local 3. I think every chef has that one restaurant in their careers where they experience an “ah-hah” moment about cooking—the revelation that you’re no longer a cook, but a chef. For me, that was Local 3. I couldn’t tell you what it was, but that’s when it happened. So I got serious about food and immersed myself—I read books, visited different restaurants. I ate, slept, and breathed food. The trouble was, I couldn’t climb the ladder at Local 3. So, through a series of events, I ended up briefly at a restaurant called Spence run by a former chef of mine. When he left and the owners reconcepted the restaurant, I decided to move on again. This time, landing at The Shed. Yep. But I didn’t know Cindy [the owner]. I actually posted my resume on Craigslist, and she called me the next day. I started in November 2015, and the rest is history. Tell us about the concept. Our guiding goal is to be a neighborhood restaurant, so I just try to cook food that I think people will enjoy. I want this place to be a meeting place for friends, a showcase of true Atlanta food, a home away from home. That said, it’s important to know that everyone in my kitchen has a seat at the table and contributes to the menu. All our names are on the menus we print, because everybody has a say in what we create. Would you say, loosely, that the food is American comfort fare? It’s a hodgepodge. I’m still trying to figure out exactly how to define our cuisine, to be honest. So far, we’re just focused on making good food. I mean, there are at least six different cuisines represented on our menu at any given time, so I guess it’s a global menu? [Laughs] That’s fair. But if you’re not pulling from a specific tradition, then what’s your inspiration? What’s in season, what’s cool, what I eat. Sometimes, I’m inspired by food trends or what other restaurants are doing. Or, maybe it’s a dish I made at 82

another restaurant and I want to reintroduce it with my own spin. Or it’s a meal from a TV show or cookbook. Sometimes, we even make dishes that are suggestions from guests. Does that mean the menu is constantly changing? Oh yes. We have a new menu every day. But not everything changes—we have four or five core dishes that remain because diners love them. For example, we have a Steak and Eggs feature that’s a new take on deviled eggs—beef tartare tucked in a hard-cooked egg white topped with whipped yolk. Then, of course, we have our Burger, the Kale Caesar, and for dessert, the Chocolate Ding-Dong with cream filling. They’re all popular. And what does the future look like at The Shed? How do you build on these signatures? We just started a housemade charcuterie program, actually. It’s in its maiden voyage, so we’ll be building that up over time. One of my line cooks is also starting to make batches of fresh pasta in house. And we have a new pastry chef on board, so there’s lots happening. Oh, and we’re also going to be launching a pantry program on our website, where people can order typical kitchen pantry items—like chicken stock, soup, cookie dough, pie crusts, and so on—and pick them up at the restaurant. With such a hectic schedule and constantly changing culinary offerings, do you get any time away from the kitchen? I have Mondays off, and I usually spend those days at other restaurants—trying food that’s new and different. There are a lot of smaller restaurants opening in the city now, which I think is pretty cool. They’re casual, but the food is outstanding—Michelin-quality in some cases. Plus, Atlanta is going through a generational change. Our well-known, older chefs are leaving the kitchen, and younger chefs are taking over. It’ll be exciting to see how that plays out.
