Matt Weinstein, who most recently ran the kitchen at the recently shuttered Woodfire Grill, has found a new home. Weinstein is on board as co-executive chef at ONE. Midtown Kitchen, Concentrics Restaurant Group confirmed to Eater Atlanta Thursday morning. He's joining forces with fellow One executive chef Christopher Maher.
"Weinstein's out-of-the-box modern cooking perfectly complements Maher's more classically refined approach," PR for Concentrics said in a statement. "Both are having a lot of fun developing a menu that exudes both strengths. The talent, between the two, is unparalleled and is already making this Midtown staple a lot of fun for its regulars and new diners alike."
In other Woodfire Grill alum news, Nicolas Quinones, the restaurant's former owner, is taking over as general manager at Cooks & Soldiers in Westside. Castellucci Hospitality Group PR confirmed to Eater Atlanta Thursday morning that Quinones will begin as GM "in the next few weeks."
