Nicole Frey Edwards is New Chef de Cuisine at Revival
Spy the new face among the kitchen team at Revival, Kevin Gillespie’s popular Decatur restaurant? Creative star Nicole Frey Edwards is Revival’s new chef de cuisine, making the move from Gunshow, Gillespie’s Glenwood Park restaurant. This Southerner by choice and heart exudes warmth and a fervor for Southern fare and peak season pickings. Her love affair with Southern cuisine started when she arrived in Atlanta in 2014 to serve as executive sous chef at Watershed on Peachtree and gain exposure to Creole and modern bents on Southern flavors. Edwards admits an addiction to reading “classic cookbooks with recipes that sound like they’re straight from a great-grandmother’s table” and credits Gunshow with pushing her past her creative comfort zone and into dish-driving seasonality. The Johnson and Wales University grad began her culinary career with Operation Frontline Colorado/Share our Strength in Denver while also working at The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa. Enjoy Edward’s cuisine over dinner at Revival Wednesday through Sunday and Sunday brunch.
