Chef Nick Anderson, who has worked in kitchens at Atlanta fine dining institutions such as Canoe and served as chef de cuisine at Tomo, and most recently, Rathbun’s, is the new executive chef at Ormsby’s in West Midtown.
A Marietta native, and graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, N.C., Anderson started his career working under chef Paul Albrecht at Spice before taking a sous chef position at Canoe, where he worked for six years.
Ormsby’s is known for its speakeasy atmosphere, mixing updated pub grub, craft beer and cocktails with a game room that features pool, shuffleboard, darts and an indoor bocce ball court.
According to a press release: One of the changes that Ormsby’s patrons can look forward to with Anderson helming the kitchen is the addition of more local meat and produce. “I’ve developed relationships with local farms over the years and plan to use those to highlight great local products throughout the menu. That way my guests know what they’re eating,” he says.
