Chef Kevin Gillespie’s true passion lies in serving his customers quality food every day. This enthusiasm means incorporating the use of fresh, organic, and sustainable ingredients in all of his dishes. His goals as executive chef ofWoodfire Grill are to increase the usage of local products and make seasonal dishes more exciting.An Atlanta, Georgia, native, Gillespie began his culinary education at The Art Institute of Atlanta. After graduating with honors, he went on to hold different positions at several well-known Atlanta restaurants, including chef de partie at Atlanta Grill at The Ritz-Carlton, sous chef at TWO Urban Licks, and chef de cuisine at Woodfire Grill. In August of 2006, Gillespie headed to the West Coast, where he went to work as executive sous chef atFife in Portland, Oregon. He came back to Woodfire Grill after a year and a half to continue to work for his friend and teacher Michael Tuohy. In the summer of 2008, Nicolas Quinones and Bernard Moussa of Five Senses Restaurants, LLC purchased Woodfire Grill and made Gillespie the new executive chef. In early 2009, Gillespie joined Quinones and Moussa as a partner in the restaurant. In addition to achieving this partnership at the restaurant, Gillespie also earned a spot on Bravo’s Emmy- and James Beard award-winning series Top Chef for the show’s sixth season in Las Vegas, in 2009. Proving to be a top contender by winning the most Quickfire Challenges and Elimination Challenges in the history of the show, he stood out as one of the season’s final three chef-testants who competed for the Top Chef title in Napa Valley. Gillespie was also votedfan favorite by the viewers of Top Chef.

As a rising young culinary star who brings more than just good food to the table, Gillespie was named one of Mother Nature Network’s top“40 Chefs Under 40” in November 2009, for linking farms to forks and promoting better health for people and the planet. In February of 2010, he was honored as one of Gayot.com’s“Top Five Rising Chefs” and named as a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s“Rising Star Chef of the Year” award. A few months later, in June, Gillespie was invited to prepare a meal at the James Beard House in New York City, and was also featured onCooking with Emeril on SIRIUS XM Radio. In 2010, Gillespie was selected as acelebrity chef ambassador for the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program and also received The Art Institute of Atlanta’sDistinguished Alumni Award for his outstanding accomplishments in the restaurant industry. In 2011, Gillespie was again named a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s“Rising Star Chef of the Year” award and was nominated for Food & Wine’s“The People’s Best New Chef.” Gillespie has even been honored in cartoon form; in September 2011, he performed the voice-overs for his own character on the season premiere ofSquidbillies on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. In November 2011, Gillespie served as a keynote speaker for the international conference of Les Dames d’Escoffier.

During Gillespie’s time at Woodfire Grill, the restaurant has been featured on CNN and inTravel + Leisure, Food & Wine, and Men’s Health as a dining destination for visitors to Atlanta.
