Jay Swift, Chef & Owner

Jay Swift, Chef & Owner

As the chef and owner of 4th & Swift, Jay Swift is the pioneer of the premier dining destination in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood. Jay and his talented culinary team source the freshest ingredients from their on-site garden, nearby micro-farms and several local and regional food purveyors. Since opening in 2008, the restaurant has received continuous praise including three – four-star reviews in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It is also a Zagat rated and TripAdvisor five-star dining destination.

As a member of Georgia Organics and supporter of the local farmer’s markets, Jay is actively engaged with Atlanta’s progressive culinary community. In 2012, he was named Restaurateur of the Year at the 6th Annual Georgia Restaurant Association (GRA ) Grace Awards, and received a Crystal of Excellence Award. In addition, he serves on the board of directors for the GRA. Jay also supports Share Our Strength’s campaign to end childhood hunger and the Atlanta chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier through his ongoing participation in fundraising events for both organizations. He is a founding member of Staplehouse and supporter of The Giving Kitchen and has been honored with several invitations to cook at the renowned James Beard House in New York City and elsewhere.

Graham House, Chef de Cuisine/ Pastry Chef

Graham House, Chef de Cuisine/ Pastry Chef

Fueled by a deep wanderlust and desire to hone his craft, Graham House cooked in many kitchens with different styles of cuisines. House spent his early years in kitchens in Asheville, North Carolina, and Atlanta, until 2006 when he took a chance and moved to Italy. In a small town outside of Lake Como he lived, cooked, and learned with the locals in the 140 year old kitchen at Osteria Del Bouche. Heading back to the states in 2007, House was the opening sous chef at 4th & Swift, where he learned the ins and outs of local and seasonal under Chef Jay Swift and Chris Hall. In 2010, Graham decided to take his food out west, truly developing his fresh veggie-centric style in California. Following a brief stint with Jeremy Fox, he went on to work at the Michelin starred restaurant Redd in Yountville. After helping Reddington open ReddWood, a more casual Italian restaurant, House decided the quiet rolling hills of Napa weren’t for him, so he packed his knives and moved to the city.

Starting off as the sous chef at Prospect in San Francisco, House was allowed creative control over most of the menu. With the Ferry Building farmers market three walking blocks from the restaurant, Graham took full advantage. Combining bold flavors with bolder aesthetics in his dishes, he applied a carnivores approach to the amazing produce in California, and used not just the entire animal, but also the entire vegetable no matter what it was. Fermenting, dehydrating, and pickling. Food rarely went into compost. “Proteins are normally an after thought when it comes to creating a dish.” When his two and a half years were up at Prospect, Graham decided to bring all he had learned back to the Old Fourth Ward to 4th & Swift. Upon his arrival in May, House wasted no time putting his spin on the menu, and he plans to continue evolving and elevating himself and the cuisine.
