Hal Nowak Extended Interview

Hals’s on Old Ivy is an Atlanta institution founded on the principles of providing great ingredients, value for money, a craving to come back (often), and professional staff to cater to professional clients.

Every night at Hal’s is a special night, and there are no pickier customers than Hal Nowack and his team.

Hal, a New Orleans native, brought the culture he grew up in to his restaurant in Buckhead, pouring what he calls “a good healthy glass of wine” and a belief in advertising on the plate and in the glass.

Watch our extended interview to see Hal talk about his New Orleans roots; and after 22 years in Atlanta, how he sees the burgeoning chef-driven restaurant scene in Atlanta.
