Zeb Stevenson, the former executive chef at Livingston confirmed today that he’s taken over the kitchen at Parish, and there are plans for more big changes at the Old Fourth Ward restaurant that’s part of the Concentrics group.
In other news, it seems that Matt Basford is the replacement chef for Carvel Grant Gould at Canoe in Vinings. Cyrille Holota has left BLT to take a job in Bora Bora, of all places. And according to her Facebook page Karen Portaleo (called by some “the most amazing cake decorator the world has ever seen”) is leaving Highland Bakery.
While we’re on the subject of changes, it looks as though bartender Arianne Fielder may be leaving Article 14 for a job with an Atlanta restaurant group.
That’s a lot of chef, cake decorator and bartender shuffles, with more details to come.
What do think or know about all the changes in the Atlanta dining scene?
