  1. Stephen McGuffin was Chef de Cuisine at DISH and it will be reopening in March.
  2. Former Chef de Cuisine, Stephen McGuffin is looking at buying DISH. If so, transition should be made by end of first week of January.
  3. What happened to Jay Swift at Rainwater? Just found out an old friend, Boyd Rose, is now Top toque there. Also, is Bruce McQuain gone from Sia's and if so where did he land?
  4. I ate at Craft in NYC several years ago for NYE and was unimpressed. Having worked at Aureole and being a fan of Tom's from when he was at Grammercy Tavern I expected more.
  5. His Name is Stephen. He just started this past Tuesday. Will eventually be floating between the 2 restaurants and then will be opening his own place there once he finds the space.
  6. My brother just moved to Nashville and is the consulting chef at Park Cafe. Heard nothing but wonderful things about the food and staff there.
  7. Great post. I don't live in Atlanta, but you made me want to drive over just to try this place. Of course, I'm going to want to eat in the kitchen, just like you. I think I'll try telling him I'm a dear friend of Norm's and see how far that gets me. ← Chef Jones (Patrick) is a very good friend of mine and I know he runs a tight ship. He won't tolerate anything but spotless.
  8. Most kitchens buy 2 sets. He keeps one for sharpening and then changes them out once a week.
  9. Noticed that too. Most I already know, but a few I don't like this weeks.
  10. Every restaurant I cheffed at in Atlanta I used Bladesmith. The Edges do incredible work and are very professional. If I ever went back to the kitchen i would use them again.
  11. Won't be able to get the "ghetto" burger. That place closed down last year.
  12. chefATL

    Bama Bound

    In Montgomery, Jubilee Seafood, Garretts, and La Jolla are the best. For cheap eats, Tomatinos and El Rey in the Old Cloverdale area are good bets.
  13. Might also try Star Provisions.
  14. Carmen Capello formally of MIX is now chef at Merge in Marietta
  15. Actually, Greg Koetting is at Paul's, not Panos.
  16. You might want to go see Lamar at East-West Bistro. He does some great food too.
  17. Did not see the NYT piece. I was a chef in Atlanta for several years. I also have a brother who is a chef in Atlanta and I now work in sales selling to restaurants, hotels, etc. (Plus, I used to work for Kevin).
  18. Kevin Rathbuns Steaks is coming next April. Couldn't be happier for him. He's done more to put Atlanta on the culinary map than any other chef in the ATL.
  19. I can vouch that Mary Macs uses fresh veggies. They are one of our accounts (I'm now in the produce business).
  20. I can remember going when in college back in "89. It was one of my fondest college memories of what I do remember of it. Don't remember the food as much as the booze was definitely free-flowing.
  21. That's an exception in Atlanta. MOST places cook burgers to the consumers desired temp.
  22. Might also want to venture to Atlantic Station and go to LOBBY. Aria has excellent food in Buckhead. I prefer Midtown myself. Try Spice, Mitra, or South City Kitchen. Rathbun's in Inman Park was the hottest restaurant in Atlanta for the last year and a half.
  23. I had the pleasure of working with Chef Blais for a night while he was at Bazaar. He definitely has an interesting take on food.
