Our Management Team

Colt Bergman | Chef / Kitchen Manager |

Colton Bergman is an Atlanta, Georgia native. He began his cooking career at age eighteen, working for Henry’s Louisiana Grill in Georgia. After three years of working every aspect of the restaurant, Colton found his passion in creating desserts and plate presentation: the combination of art and wonderful food! After leaving Henry’s, Colt had the opportunity to work in a myriad of restaurants including Smash Kitchen, Osteria Matone, The Spence, Lintons in the Garden, and most notably KR Steak Bar. Here he had the opportunity to work with Kevin Rathburn, winner of Iron Chef America.

Colt accredits his culinary experience to his multitude of teachers who welcomed him into their kitchens. Through masters such as Kevin Rathburn, Tom Catherall, Richard Blais, Linton Hopkins, and Jason Paolini, he learned different culinary techniques such as making fresh mozzarella, wood burning grills and ovens, and gastronomy.
