We are excited to announce that Chef Tournant Garrett Pittler and Barlines will be competing in the James Beard Foundation’s Better Burger Project™. This competition is open to restaurants across the country by challenging them to create a burger blend using ground meat and chopped mushrooms to introduce a more delicious, healthier, and sustainable burger. Chef Garrett will be submitting his Turkey Porta Royal burger. The top five chefs with the most Instagram uploads will win a trip to New York City in October 2015 to cook their “Better Burgers” at the official welcome reception for the annual James Beard Foundation Food Conference. Help us send Chef Garrett to NYC and stop by Barlines to try his famous burger and upload a picture of your burger to Twitter or Instagram using these tags: #BetterBurgerProject, @GarrettPittler, and @OmniNashville.
About Chef Garrett
As the Chef Tournant of the Omni Nashville Hotel, Garrett Pittler helps oversee the creative and managerial direction operations for the hotel’s signature dining venues Barlines, Bongo Java, and the rooftop lounge. Garrett’s mission is to create an authentic expression of Nashville’s vibrant culture through culinary interpretations. He strongly believes in sourcing local ingredients to express the “New Southern food experience” and using classical dishes as inspiration.
Prior to joining Omni Hotels and Resorts, Garrett served as executive chef of Chelsea Bistro in Whites Creek, Tenn. A traditional French bistro specializing in casual French fare, Garrett grew 75 percent of the restaurant’s the produce in the garden on the property. Sourcing local meats, produce, composting all vegetables and plant material, Garrett molded Chelsea Bistro into a sustainable restaurant. Before this he was with Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. where he served as the hotel’s restaurant chef. Prior to settling down in Tennessee, Garrett was instrumental in opening restaurants across the globe including Queenstown, Rio de Janeiro, Melbourne, the Grand Cayman Islands, Osaka, Dublin and Moscow exposing him to local cultures and food heritage.
Garrett’s love for cooking began as a child in Buffalo, N.Y., where he spent time in his mother’s kitchen cooking alongside his Greek grandmother. While other children were watching Mr. Rogers, he was infatuated by Martin Yan and Justin Wilson’s cooking shows. At the age of eighteen, knowing his calling was to become a professional chef, Garrett left home to pursue a degree at Baltimore International College of Culinary Arts.
In his time away from the hotel, Garrett routinely assists several Nashville charity organizations like Ronald McDonald House, Our Kids, and the March of Dimes.
Located in the Omni Nashville Hotel, next to the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and Hatch Show Print©, Barlines is conveniently near popular downtown attractions including Bridgestone Arena, the Ryman Auditorium and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
