5Church Atlanta Welcomes Scotley Innis as Executive Chef
Owner Ayman Kamel and his team at 5Church Atlanta are excited to welcome new executive chef Scotley Innis, who was formerly sous chef at South City Kitchen in Midtown and executive chef at Ormsby’s in West Midtown. Innis brings a more “up-tempo” Southern feel to the menu, drawing upon a personal pantry of ingredients: Caribbean heritage, a knack for applying unorthodox techniques to traditional dishes, a penchant for proving to locals that modernizing Southern staples yields extraordinary results and a wealth of culinary experiences. Innis began his culinary career working in local Jamaican-style restaurants in New York before heading south and earning his culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu. He moved up through kitchens at Marriott Hotels and Au Pied de Cochon at the InterContinental Hotel, immersed himself in the role of executive chef at Cajun/Creole Mudcatz Bayou Bar and Grill in Dunwoody and honed skills in fine dining cuisine at Tom Collichio’s Craftbar in Buckhead. Innis moved to Ormsby’s in 2009 and became executive chef in 2011, building a menu of from-scratch comfort food and fresh pub favorites that relied heavily on local produce and herbs. Joining the team at South City Kitchen furthered his knowledge of Southern cuisine. Now, Innis is excited about joining the 5Church Atlanta family and providing guests with a dining experience they’ll rave about.
