Agraria Names New Chef

After losing its original chef just days before opening, Agraria Restaurant bounced back quickly, naming Ricky Moore executive chef today.

Moore was most recently executive chef at Parrot Cage Restaurant in Chicago, but he's cooked locally at Equinox, Galileo and Vidalia.

He'll take over the kitchen at Agraria in mid-July. His attitude toward cooking seems to fit Agraria's mission like a glove. "I am a chef that enjoys seasonal, flavor-driven food. Simple, delicious ingredients are the star of the dish," the chef said in a release.
