The hospitality industry across Georgia was invited to submit nominations for who they thought should be a 2018 Rising Star. Out of those many nominations, the five restaurant employees listed below were selected as this year’s Rising Stars because they are not just good at what they do, they go above and beyond their job description to make the restaurant successful. They are up and comers who are thinking up new and innovative ways of doing things and have the potential to be leaders of change in the culinary world.

The 2018 Rising Stars are:
Savannah Kirkwood, General Manager, Radial Cafe
Danilo “Q” Myers, Executive Chef, The Southern Gentleman
Laura Orellana, Executive Sous Chef, Osteria Mattone
Joel Penn, Chef de Cuisine, Wrecking Bar Brewpub

The Rising Stars will be featured in Restaurant INFORMER‘s May-June issue. Additionally, Restaurant INFORMER will be hosting a lunch on May 4 for the Rising Stars alongside Presenting Sponsor Sysco Atlanta to celebrate and recognize their great work.
