Cypress Street Pint and Plate, a neighborhood staple known for its burgers, brews and events, is pleased to welcome Matt Deckard. A veteran chef with a rich history in Atlanta, Deckard joins the wily team at one of Midtown’s favorite haunts and craft beer bars right before they head back to Las Vegas this November for the World Burger Championship, where their celebrated Sublime Doughnut Burger earned the title of the second best burger in the world in 2013.
Before taking over the kitchen at Cypress Street Pint and Plate this fall, Deckard worked in Charleston, South Carolina where he developed a passion for seafood and southern cuisine. After moving to Atlanta, he further honed his craft by working in a number of restaurants including Garrison’s Broiler & Tap, Taco Mac, and Deckard’s Tavern. With a love of all things beer, Deckard is now working side-by-side with co-owner Billy Streck and Cypress Street Pint and Plate’s resident beer expert, Rob “BrewRu” Merrick to continue to build the restaurant’s beer program and commitment to serve delicious food from daily specials, and seasonal dishes to creative burgers and sandwiches, vibrant salads, entrees, desserts and more. Although knee-deep in planning their attack for 2014 World Burger Championship, Deckard will also working with Streck and Merrick to revamp the lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menus in the coming the weeks.
