Executive chef, Hampton + Hudson
Savannah Sasser began making waves during her tenure as head chef at Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards in Decatur. In February she left Twain’s to helm the kitchen at Hampton + Hudson, bringing with her a proclivity for showcasing vegetables. Don’t let her way with produce fool you, though, because her off-duty eats are anything but vegetarian.
Favorite Restaurant: Saltyard, Brookwood Hills
Why she loves it: I like what Nick Leahy does. He sources locally as much as possible, and he’s always changing the menu, which is refreshing. You never get the same meal twice!
Favorite Dish: He does an octopus niçoise that I love. It’s charred with olives, tomatoes, green beans and lemon.
