The guys at Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen are making headlines again.
The Tennessean has featured the upscale eatery at 712 West Brookhaven Circle and its unique culinary experience.
“Have fun when you eat,” said Michael Hudman, who owns the restaurant along with childhood friend Andy Ticer. “Try new things, and be respectful of the whole animal.”
Just last month, the duo was nominated for Food and Wine magazine’s People’s Choice: Best New Chef Southeast, a list recognizing America’s 10 most brilliant, up-and-coming chefs each year. Hudman and Ticer were also one of five regional restaurateurs to participate in February’s Cochon 555 competition, and were recently nominated as a semi-finalist for the James Beard Foundations’ Best Chef Southeast award.
