svp, culinary

Taking a degree from the Art Institute of Atlanta, Halberg paired a push through some of Atlanta’s most respected restaurants (Justin Ward’s Harvest, La Grotta Ristorante in Buckhead) with a year working in Florence and Modena, Italy. With a growing passion for American ingredients and Mediterranean sensibility, he traveled to Maine to work at James Beard winner Melissa Kelly’s seaside Italianate restaurant Primo. This was followed by seven years in Boston, consulting for popular restaurant/caterer Bakers Best and running restaurants for both Laura Brennan and James Beard winner Michael Schlow. In Connecticut, Halberg has found his place overseeing the kitchens for the Barteca Restaurant Group, developing a strong group of creative, collaborative chefs for a local bar and dining institution.
