Heading up the kitchen is Western New York native Executive Chef Bryan Kraatz, who, when he is not creating amazingly innovative food in the kitchen at MetroFresh, is performing in a rock band - no kidding! He earned his nickname "Rockstar" because he really is a rock star - in the kitchen and on stage. His band DEAR ENEMY plays gigs all over the southeast, but the really cool thing is that he got his training as a chef at CIA (Culinary Institute of America.) You have not lived until you have tried Rockstar's Cassoulet, a warming winter meal with chicken, sausage and white beans or his Cr�me Brule French Toast. Rocstar is particularly brilliant at taking the everyday and making it MetroFresh magical. And like me, Rockstar loves to incorporate flavors from all over the world from Southeast Asia to South America, from Northern Italy to Northwestern New York.
In the afternoon, the kitchen baton is passed to Miguel Navarette, who we call Tio Miguel! Miguel worked as a line cook in many local restaurants including Patio in Inman Park, Taverna Plakka, and Buckhead Diner where his skills as a dinner chef were perfected. On a daily basis, Tio Miguel, creates, cooks and plates beautiful, creative dinner specials (as well as Sunday brunch) that are as distinctive and rich as any restaurant in Atlanta. He has taken our dinner options to a new level and is really the anchor of this peculiar tag team of chefs.
