Pano Karatassos

Kyma and Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, Atlanta

Since it opened in 2001, Kyma in Atlanta has become one of the nation’s most celebrated Greek restaurants. We’ve tapped Kyma’s veteran executive chef Pano Karatassos to craft a Beard House dinner that pays homage to his French training, Southern roots, and, of course, the flavors and traditions of his Greek heritage.
