Chef Carmen Cappello was born in Philadelphia in 1977 and has always been intrigued by food, flavors, and technique. He comes from a background of Sicilian tradition and moved to Atlanta in 1996 right after the Olympics.
Chef Cappello has worked for some of the most influential chefs on the East Coast including Chef Georges Perrier and Francesco Martorella of Le Bec Fin and Brasserie Perrier, Master Chef Jack Shoop, Master Chef Alfonzo Constriani, Thomas Ryan, Phillippe Haddad and Scott Serpes of TWO. Urban licks.
Chef Cappello has made a lasting impression in kitchens across Atlanta, as Executive Chef at both M!X restaurant.lounge.bar, where he was given three stars by Atlanta Magazine and Creative Loafing for his work at M!X; and at Sweet Lowdown in Midtown Atlanta, where he blurred the boundaries between Southern Cuisine, French technique, Asian Flavors and Italian products creating what he called New South Brasserie. “It’s about showing what you can do with what people think is a simple cuisine and elevating it to its fullest potential.”
Today, Chef Carmen is the president/co-owner of JCL Global Culinary LLC. His company specializes in restaurant marketing, consulting, cooking demonstrations and advertising, as well as kitchen design and beer, wine and tequila dinners held all over the city of Atlanta.
