Anne Quatrano

(b. 1957)

When Quatrano and husband/business partner Clifford Harrison moved Bacchanalia—their nationally renowned fine-dining restaurant—from a Buckhead cottage to uncharted Westside in 1999, foodies fretted over whether it would survive. Not only did it flourish, but it also sparked redevelopment that eventually made Westside the city’s hottest dining neighborhood. With three other restaurants (Floataway Cafe, Quinones at Bacchanalia, and the latest, Abattoir) and gourmet market Star Provisions to run, Quatrano tries to spend time at each every day.

Greener Pastures Quatrano inherited Summerland, a sixty-acre farm in Cartersville, where she and Harrison grow produce that supplies their restaurants. Horses, goats, cows, ducks, guinea hens, and a pig named Hammy roam the property.
