Gunshow chef and owner Kevin Gillespie continues to fill out the staff at Revival, his forthcoming Southern eatery in Decatur. Christy Lee Faircloth is on board as general manager, joining Andreas Müller, who was previously announced as executive chef.
"Andreas and I have been working together for a long time, and our mutual enthusiasm for preparing traditional family-style meals with farm-fresh ingredients makes him perfect for leading the kitchen at Revival," Gillespie said in a prepared statement. "And we all feel really lucky to have Christy Lee as the matriarch for our front-of-house team. She's incredibly family-minded and has developed a lot of close relationships within the Decatur community."
Before moving to Revival, Faircloth worked on service and management teams in Ford Fry's empire, including No. 246, St. Cecilia, and The El Felix.
Revival, which aims to remind diners of eating at their Southern grandmothers' houses, is taking over the former Harbour House Pub building at 129 Church Street. Gillespie hopes to open the restaurant next month.
