Serving a globally inspired and locally sourced menu, Executive chef Nick Leahy helms the kitchen at Saltyard. Nick is originally from Bermuda and credits his diverse culinary style to his international travels growing up. He first began working in the restaurant industry in high school and honed his skills under Atlanta legend Chip Ulbrich at Food Studio. He then moved overseas to serve as Executive Chef at Daylesford Organic in London—a restaurant that solely uses local and organic ingredients from farms around the city. This experience fueled Nick’s passion for sourcing from small, nearby purveyors and farmers.
