Scott Serpas, Chef
South Louisiana native and executive chef Scott Serpas has a knack for carving out a style all his own, and his culinary charisma has culled attention from adoring diners and critics alike. From the prestigious James Beard Foundation to Gourmet, GQ and Food & Wine, this chef has garnered attention for his honest approach to Southern food with Louisiana flair.
Scott has become an irreplaceable part of Atlanta’s culinary scene with Serpas True Food. Located in what was once a cotton storage facility in the heart of Atlanta’s culturally rich Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, Serpas is known for its “true food” approach to cuisine with an edge. The restaurant has received local and national acclaim since its January 2009 debut and was named one of the 10 “Best New Restaurants in America” in 2009 by GQ magazine.
Manuel Lara, Sous Chef
Sous chef Manuel Lara showcases a seasoned palate for international flavors and a serious dedication to high-quality cuisine at Serpas True Food. A native of Guerrero, Mexico, Lara became immersed in indigenous Mexican cooking techniques at a young age with the influence of his grandmother, prompting a passion for authentic flavors while connecting family heritage with food. In collaborating with long-time mentor and executive chef Scott Serpas on the restaurant’s New Orleans-inspired menus, Lara incorporates the freshest produce available and diverse seasonal ingredients into each of his dishes, often updating a classic recipe with a modernized twist.
Contributing to the success of Serpas’ January 2009 debut, Lara is an irreplaceable member of the restaurant’s foundation who has helped to identify and solidify the neighborhood destination among the Old Fourth Ward’s emerging fine dining scene.
