With a decade’s worth of experience and a lifetime’s love of food under his belt, Chef Michael Patria brings a creative flair to the dining experience at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta. In his role as Executive Chef, he oversees the kitchen of breakfast destination, Park 75 and its popular lunch and dinner outlet, Bar Margot. Chef Patria’s culinary repertoire includes stints in Atlanta and San Francisco, but the beginning dates back to his youth and time spent in the kitchen with an Italian father and a mother with deep Kentucky roots. He recalls many family dinners eating everything from authentic Italian pasta dishes to his favorite Southern delicacy: fried pork chops. The way his parents managed to merge the flavors of Italy and the American South inspired Patria’s own drive to create new dishes and experiment with genres.
