"Glenwood Park’s Gunshow is likely the most one-of-a-kind restaurant in Atlanta. The concept driven eatery, created in 2013 by chef Kevin Gillespie – the brain behind Woodfire Grill and Revival – is a Brazilian churrascaria meets Chinese dim-sum mash-up that leads diners through a fun and unexpected restaurant experience. At Gunshow, diners get to interact directly with the chefs, who personally deliver dishes to each table from a constantly changing menu featuring brand new recipes on a weekly, and sometimes daily basis, so each visit is bound to be a completely new experience.
Although Gunshow is already one of the most unique dining destinations in town, six times a year they do something that takes things to the next level. Hired Guns, the brainchild of Chef's Joey Ward and Kevin Gillespie, brings Atlanta diners face to face with some of the best chefs from cities all across America and beyond. For each dinner in the Hired Guns series, Gillespie recruits one of his favorite chefs from another city to join his staff for one night and add some signature dishes of their own to the Gunshow menu. The guest chefs are set loose in the kitchen and given free reign to create whatever they can dream up, and trust us, this usually results in some pretty crazy – and delicious – dishes. Not only will diners get to sample a couple completely new dishes in addition to Gunshow’s already rotating menu, but they’ll also get to meet and interact with the visiting “hired gun” and hear their story in a unique and intimate chef’s table experience.
For May's edition of Hired Guns, Kevin has recruited 2015 Food & Wine magazine Best New Chef Grae Nonas, who is originally from New York and now resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Nonas was most recently the executive chef of the Nordic restaurant Tullibee at the Hewing Hotel. Prior to that, he was the co-executive chef at Olamaie, a modern, southern-focused farm-to-table restaurant in Austin, Texas. In addition to running the kitchen at Olamaie, Nonas was a James Beard Award “Rising Star” finalist and has worked at Michelin-star rated Osteria di Passignano in Tuscany, at Centro Vinoteca with chef Anne Burrell, Le Pigeon of Portland, Oregon, Pesce and North of New York City, as well as Animal and Son of a Gun in Los Angeles. Nonas's years of transcontinental experience will certainly result in some dishes that you won’t want to miss during his night as Gunshow guest chef. Patrons will be sent home with a souvenir menu signed by Kevin and Grae, as well as plenty of opportunities to take photos of both chefs throughout their dinner.
