Folks, let me introduce you to two wonderful people. Two hard-working people. Generous business owners. Friends to so many. Creative. Congenial. Constantly offering new approach to dining — and they are just getting started.
They got their start here in Atlanta way back when — before we were a city known for our food. Nothing like today. They gathered knowledge over the years and made their way to Midtown to open Cypress Street Pint & Plate. Fast forward a bit to 2017 and they open Hampton + Hudson in Inman Park. Then, partnering with Anthony Spina, they are part of the team behind Nina & Rafi on the Beltline.
I absolutely loved sitting with these two to hear their story. You’ll hear how much of their story is rooted in the food business. They both come from different upbringings and learned what they know from finding their way into the bartending side of things. No culinary school. No chef family. These two are students of taking care of others through the best way they know how — food and drink.
Thank you, Billy and Jenn. I’m so thankful for all that you’ve done for Atlanta and continue to do!
