Executive Chef: Milton “M.G.” Farris

Chef “M.G.” Farris’ career began at the prestigious New England Culinary Institute and was followed by work at a number of restaurants in his native Atlanta. With four years of experience under his belt, Farris took on a seven-month internship at Villa Via Granger Bar and Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, where he was promoted to executive sous chef. Upon completing the internship, he followed his passion for cooking to New York, where he worked at Jo Jo with esteemed Chef Jean Georges Vongerichten. Farris was promoted to chef de cuisine at Jo Jo in just three months. From there, he went on to work as executive sous chef at La Caravelle, the Mobil Four-Star, AAA Four-Diamond, DiRoNa Distinguished Restaurant that has been repeatedly named one of the top 20 restaurants in the country, with Chef Eric Di Mineco.

Vongerichten recruited Farris back to Jo Jo where he worked for four months before leaving New York for Atlanta to work as chef de cuisine at Pano’s & Paul’s. There, Ferris helped the restaurant achieve another star in its ratings and an excellent Zagat rating. Farris’ experiences in New York and Atlanta soon inspired him to branch out on his own. He took his culinary talents to Florida where he became the chef, owner and operator of MG’s, Market 102 and Food 102. After operating his restaurants in Florida, Farris decided to retreat from the business side and return to the kitchen where he could pursue his true passion for cooking.

He came to Eno in 2005 where he has brought his cutting edge contemporary cuisine to this renowned restaurant and wine bar.
