Todd Immel, who has run the meat department at Star Provisions since 2008, has been named executive chef of Floataway Cafe. Under Immel's control the meat department flourished, putting out fresh sausages, terrines, and cured meats that rival the best in any butcher shop or restaurant in Atlanta. Speaking over the phone, Immel said that helming Floataway Cafe, which is part of the Anne Quattrano owned restaurant group that owns Star Provisions, had been in his sights for some time.
Restaurants in Atlanta have a knack for latching onto trends and clutching them furiously--much longer than in other cities--until the vitality completely withers. So many tapas palaces opened last decade that I can still barely face a martini glass brimming with ceviche without wanting to replace it with straight gin. I’m beginning to have a similar reaction to Neapolitan pizza.
Drew Belline surprised Atlanta’s food fans last month with his announcement that he will leave Floataway Cafe to be executive chef at Ford Fry’s newest project, an Italian/Mediterranean restaurant at in the former Eurasia Bistro spot at 129 East Ponce de Leon in downtown Decatur.
