Brendan Keenan has been named executive chef of Italian restaurant il Giallo in Sandy Springs. Owners chef Jamie Adams and Leonardo Moura made the announcement via press release Monday.

Keenan, who worked with Adams previously at Eno in Midtown, has done stints at The Sound Table as well as the now-shuttered Woodfire Grill and Bluepointe in Buckhead before serving as the executive chef for Marietta’s Seed Kitchen & Bar and Drift Fish House. Prior to his work in Atlanta, Keenan spent time in the kitchens of two James Beard award-winning chefs in San Fransisco, Michael Mina at Aqua and Julian Serrano at Masa’s.

No further details were given as to Keenan’s plans for the menu at il Giallo.

il Giallo is located at 5920 Roswell Road, Suite B-118 in Sandy Springs at the corner of Roswell Road and Cliftwood Drive NE.
