Omnivore - New chef for Top Flr, part 2
New chef at Top Flr...no really this time.
A few weeks ago, I reported that Top Flr had a new chef. This week, I got an email from owner Jeff Myers saying the news was a tad premature (they did confirm the new chef, although they were reluctant to, seemingly for good reason). Anyhoo, here's the scoop on the newest new chef, from Myers' email:
Originally from Philadelphia, PA. Shane Devereux discovered his passion for cooking as a child working in his familys kitchen. The difference for Devereux was that his family was Vietnamese and this brought an element of diversity into meal time, which continues to influence Devereux cooking style. His culinary career began with a position of pantry cook at a local private club outside Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He then moved on to work for three of Philadelphias most well-respected certified French Master Chefs: Dominique Filoni, Jean Marie LaCroix and Jean Francois Taquet. Two of whom, Filoni and Taquet, where the youngest French Master Chefs in the United States.
He moved to Atlanta and found a home at Peasant Group opening a new venture in Peasant Bistro. We are so excited to have Shane on board...
