Drew Belline is the executive chef and partner of No. 246, where he combines his leadership and culinary experience with a passion for letting ingredients develop organically into innovative dishes. Like his business partner Ford Fry, Belline is an avid believer in utilizing local products and even does his own foraging for edible mushrooms. At No. 246, Belline’s passion for simplicity and locality melds with rustic Italian techniques for a menu that is beautifully executed yet satisfying enough to enjoy on a daily basis.
David Lowery is a mathematician, writer, musician, producer and serial entrepreneur based in Richmond, VA and Athens, GA. While studying mathematics and computers at the University of California Santa Cruz in the early 1980’s, Lowery founded the critically acclaimed ensemble Camper Van Beethoven and associated record label Pitch-a-Tent Records. With these two entities, he helped jump start the Indie Rock movement.
In 1926, a group of chefs and musicians in Atlanta gathered in the tower of the Sears & Roebuck building in Atlanta, GA to put on a radio broadcast called Dinner Bell; it lasted only two years.
