Gwynnett St: New Chef

  • 3

I was planning to go to Gwynnett St for an upcoming special occasion. The place has been on my list for the past year and change, as I've heard nothing but positive reviews. However, I read in my research that they lost chef Justin Hilbert back in April and sous chef Owen Clark has taken over (I believe both were from wd~50). I haven't come across any reviews of the place since. Has anyone been? Still delivering quality and innovation consistent with the prior year and a half or should I look elsewhere? Any recommendations there would also be much appreciated (if the menu changed much). Thank you in advance!

  1. I had dinner there about 2 days after the chef change. We had a great meal, no notable differences from prior meals. Of course that was so early in the chef change that Clark may not have yet had a chance to change things up.

      My apologies for never reporting back. Better late than never? We did the tasting menu and it was solid. A little disappointing, as I had expected more, but not bad. It was a bit monotonous. Very green/similar dishes. Might have been partially affected by the fact that my date didn't eat seafood. Only got one meat dish though! I thought the cashew was dish was both fascinating and outstanding. I wouldn't go back, but I'm glad I tried it. Thank you for the perspective!
