Nation’s Restaurant News (NRN) recently released “The Power List 2015: Reader Picks,” its second annual list of the most powerful people in foodservice -- leaders who are affecting change in the restaurant industry landscape. The source of that list? NRN research and nominations submitted by those in the industry. The peer-nominated Reader Picks list includes many leaders right here on our own Southern turf. Sure, we’ll name drop some list-ees: Steven Chan, founder and CEO of Tin Drum Asiacafé; Shaun Doty, executive chef and co-owner of Bantam + Biddy; chef, cookbook author and Gunshow owner Kevin Gillespie; Tom Gray, chef and owner of Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails in Jacksonville, Florida.; Chris Hadermann and John Piemonte, co-founders and partners at Southern Proper Hospitality Group; White Oak Pastures owner Will Harris; and John C. Metz, executive chef of Marlow’s Tavern and Aqua blue. Congratulations, gentlemen! We can’t wait to see what you’ll have for us next.
