New York may be a culinary mecca, but it’s not the be-all and end-all of food talent. And as such, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight celebrity, notable, or otherwise up-and-coming chefs you should know about across the country.
Whether you’re taking a trip to Louisville and looking for a great place to eat (Ed Lee’s restaurant, duh), or are a Charlottesville local who wants to know which chefs you can defend to the self-righteous hometown death (particularly if they secure a spot on Top Chef or Chopped), we’re here to give you the heads up on which chefs you need to know in your city — and why.
This week’s edition? Top 10 Chefs You Should Know: Atlanta.
