MEET OUR CHEF
Chef Evan Babb was Georgia’s 2019 Culinarian of the Year. He brings with him a passion for high quality, authentic, and fresh ingredients. Come experience his delicious, contemporary southern cuisine. Chef Babb oversees the menu concepts and is expanding the restaurant’s “farm to fork” inspired menu. There is usually a new special he’s trying out every week.
When he’s not in the kitchen you can find the chef in the woods. In 2019 Chef Babb became certified in mushroom foraging and uses his skill to harvest mushrooms, ramps, and more in the Cumberland foothills around Wildwood Resort.
Originally from the foothills of the Appalachia Mountains in North Georgia, Chef Babb was taught at a young age to live in harmony with respect to the animals and plants of the forests and farms that provide sustenance for a healthy life. Evan tries to keep these traditions and respect for ingredients in mind with every menu item he creates.
