If you’ve ever wondered where your favorite Atlanta chefs head to when they’re not in their restaurants, this is the place to find out. Want to know who Chef Todd Gindberg thinks is the hardest working chef in Atlanta? We got it. Want to know which chefs love to hit Octopus Bar in their down time? You might be surprised by the answer.
The Optimist – Executive Chef Adam Evans
Adam can be found at his neighborhood joint, Octopus Bar, winding down late night after a busy shift at the best new restaurant in the country.
The Salt Factory – Executive Chef Bob McDonough
Bob heads to Aria in Buckhead on his days off, and restaurants close to his home, JCT Kitchen and Octopus Bar (we don’t know if he exchanges recipe ideas with Adam Evans).
Lotta Frutta — Owner/Chef Myrna Perez-Cifuentes
Myrna works seven days a week in her fruiteria, so dining out isn’t something she has a ton of time to do, but when she does you can look for her in the Old Fourth Ward – we happen to know she enjoys the new pizza joint, Ammazza, on Edgewood Avenue.
Bocado — Executive Chef Todd Ginsberg
Todd can’t pick just one place. Hector Santiago’s Pura Vida makes the list, and he heads over to Homegrown, Ga on Memorial Drive for one of the best breakfasts in town.
