Former Top Chef Adrienne Cheatham Brings Pop-Up Series to Atlanta’s Lazy Betty
Chefs Ron Hsu and Aaron Phillips of Lazy Betty in partnership with S.Pellegrino are teaming up with Chef Adrienne Cheatham to host a pop-up collaboration dinner on Monday, July 15 at the Candler Park restaurant. Hsu, Phillips, and Cheatham first met while working in the kitchen at New York City’s Le Bernardin, where Cheatham moved up the ranks to eventually become the first female executive sous chef at the three-Michelin star restaurant.
At the pop-up dinner, the three chefs are collaborating to prepare a seven-course tasting menu in the dining room ($125) and 10-course tasting menu at the chef's counter ($165), with wine pairings available. The menu will offer guests elevated comfort food and a cohesive dining experience, with the three chef’s natural cooking styles complimenting each other in a way that reflects their similar philosophies and approaches to cooking. Reservations can be booked through Resy here.
Raised in Chicago, Cheatham is credited with helping open the Aldo Sohm Wine Bar in Midtown Manhattan and private dining restaurant Privé in New York City before joining Marcus Samuelsson Group as corporate chef de cuisine. During her time there, she helped open Streetbird, which received a Michelin Bib Gourmand and served as executive chef at Red Rooster in Harlem. She is known for cooking elevated Southern comfort food, and she tested and styled dishes for Samuelsson’s Red Rooster Cookbook. In addition, she competed on season 15 of “Top Chef” and placed second. Currently, she hosts SundayBest, a pop-up dinner series held in various locations in New York City.
