Cypress Street

HEAD COOK: Ryan Crocker

COMPETITION: World Burger Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: 2013 World Food Championships

Cypress Street Pint & Plate is located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. It is a throwback to when the drinks were always cold, the food was always hot, and the bar-staff knew your name. With 14 beers on tap, 40+ bottled selections, and a fully stocked selection of wine and spirits, Cypress has become a local favorite neighborhood haunt. The Cypress Team consists of Executive Chef Matt Deckard, Ryan Crocker, and Bill Streck. Matt Deckard is a culinary and creative powerhouse, winning multiple Atlanta based cooking competitions. Ryan has worked for some of the top chefs in the industry, including Kevin Rathbun and Richard Blais. Bill Streck, owner and operator of Cypress Street Pint and Plate, is no stranger to a saute pan, frequently serving up breakfast in bed to his lovely wife Jenn. Finishing 2nd overall in last years Burger competition, this team is a force to be reckoned with, and are looking for championship gold this year!
