Nick Melvin, chef de cuisine at Rosebud, has left his post to venture out on his own. Rosebud is located in Morningside and is owned by Ron Eyester (a.k.a. “The Angry Chef”).
Melvin confirmed the move and said,
Rosebud has been an amazing team to be part of for the past year and a half, but the time had finally come for me to back out of the daily operations and focus on getting my new restaurant open… I’m very grateful to Ron for giving me the opportunity to work and be a part of his team.
Before joining the team at Rosebud, Melvin worked a brief stint at Empire State South. He’s also spent time in the kitchens of Bayonna in his hometown of New Orleans, Frank Stitt’s Highlands Bar and Grill in Birmingham and Parish Foods & Goods in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.
Melvin had no additional details about his new restaurant to share at this time.
