Granger, who came on board as the French restaurant’s first chef in August 2018, notes on his website, “After some time as the Executive Chef at Bread & Butterfly and The Brasserie, I am now looking forward to bringing my classical French training and admiration for local, farm-fresh ingredients, to some local pop-ups and in home dinners, while looking for a new Atlanta table, for which to serve my food.” Eater Atlanta reached out to Granger for more details.
