Matt Kelly

Chef, Mateo

In addition to Mateo, his popular tapas restaurant in Five Points, Matt co-owns Vin Rouge and spent 10 years in the kitchen there. At both places, he’s after solid relationships with his customers and local food growers. “We’d like to be open another 25 years,” he says. “We don’t want trendy places. We want places that are really going to make an impact, a place people can know they can go and know what we’re about.”
