Jarrett Stieber is the chef, mind, conceptual driver, and everything of Eat Me Speak Me — a legendary Atlanta restaurant pop-up that utilizes Georgia-grown ingredients. Jarret has taken EMSM (We’ll abbreviate from here on out) all over the city and is currently hosting the concept out of the kitchen at The S.O.S. Tiki Bar in Decatur.
Jarrett is an incredibly gifted mind. A decorated chef who has worked with, under, and alongside some of the most notable chefs in Atlanta, and has helped sculpt so much of our dining scene. His inspiration comes through on his menus and shows careful attention to what makes Georgia such a rich, agriculture-forward dining state. I could continue on with the list of where Jarret has been and all that he has accomplished, but I’ll leave it to you for a listen.
I’ve had the pleasure of dining at EMSM in multiple locations and we caught up at SOS, before service, on everything happening with him and the restaurant. Here’s our conversation from earlier this summer.
Recorded in a cozy booth at The S.O.S. Tiki Bar before service — quiet enough to hear the prep crew hard at work.
