1904 Club Chefs
Chris Hall
It was a long winding road to eventually get there, but Local Three was born. Years later, they opened Local Three to a swell of critical and guest acclaim and the rest, as they say, is history. Now Hall still cooks, mainly for charity events, but is the partner in charge of the day-to-day operations of Local Three. What’s on the menu, who is cooking and serving it, how we’re buying it, along with a multitude of other things.
Nan & DeeDee Niyomkul
Serving such high profile events as The Miss Universe Dinner and The Master's Champion's Dinner, Chef Nan has also been the recipient of many awards and accolades. Chef Nan truly puts a uniquely warm and prestigious touch on Thai Cuisine, exciting palates worldwide. In January of 2018, Chef DeeDee opened her newest restaurant concept “Chai Yo” in the heart of Buckhead, where she constructs imaginative classical Thai dishes using modern techniques.  Niyomkul’s menu at Chai Yo is carefully focused on delivering an inventive interplay of Thai flavors and textures, guiding the diner on a culinary exploration of provincial Thai dishes.

Gerry Klaskala
Gerry Klaskala’s perpetual passion for food and art has brought him much success throughout his career and now serves as the underlying theme at his restaurants. In 1995 he opened Canoe, one of Atlanta's most celebrated restaurants, which enabled him to advance his endeavors even further with the opening of Aria in 2000. Because of Klaskala’s bold concept at Aria, he has become a recognized and respected voice on the national dining scene and was awarded the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Georgia Restaurant Association Crystal of Excellence Awards.
Matthew Basford
Shortly after taking his first restaurant job in his late teens, Matthew Basford knew that he was headed for a career in the restaurant business. He started as line cook, and worked his way up the ranks from sous chef to executive sous chef, to chef de cuisine, and finally in 2013, Basford was named executive chef of Canoe. He continues the legacy of the city’s longstanding bastion of fine dining. His commitment to serving fresh, seasonal ingredients marries well with the rich tradition of Canoe.
