I am looking forward to showcasing the best of my expertise at TAP. The two floors and spacious patio offer a lot of potential to wow Atlanta’s diners…it’s going to be fun, explains Chef Tyler Williams. Williams, whose culinary background is extensive and varied, most recently created Byhand, a Neapolitan pizza concept coupled with an organic farm in Lake Burton.

After graduating from the Western Culinary Institute in Portland, Oregon, Williams worked at Homaru Cantu’s Moto, Graham Elliot, and Gemini Bistro. In Atlanta, he worked as Sous Chef at Bacchanalia which soon to led to his appointment as Executive Chef at Abattoir. It was there that he was applauded as Atlanta’s 2012 Rising Star Chef and Eater’s Chef of the Year – an accolade he was awarded for two consecutive years, the second during his time at Woodfire Grill.

Williams has big plans for the restaurant on the corner of 14th and Peachtree. His menu drops (can we say that for menus?) later this Summer. TAP is located at 1180 Peachtree St., Midtown. 404-347-2220. wwwtapat1180.com.
