Eighteen years ago I began my career in the restaurant industry and since then have explored and loved all that it has to offer. From fine dining to casually upscale ventures, in New York as well as Atlanta, I’ve developed, managed and/or owned several successful and innovative restaurants, such as The Globe, Atlanta Magazine’s “Restaurant of the Year” in 2006.
About two years ago I had the wild idea to take the city to the suburbs and create an engaging and interesting – hence, sexy – destination, offering the sophisticated appeal of a big city restaurant without the big city inconveniences, or long commute. After further consideration I chose the gastropub concept, and worked with Judy O'Buck Gordon of O Architects on the design. The space is simplistic and fun, with a relaxed atmosphere that combines well our comfort food cuisine and high standards.
