Brian Morris is the executive chef and vice president of culinary, learning and development at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. A Nashville native, he grew up enjoying hot chicken with family and friends but had no plans to one day serve Music City’s signature dish. His culinary career led him to New York City where he cooked at the iconic Le Cirque restaurant. Morris, classically-trained, was also a private chef for several years. When he returned to his hometown, he joined the team at Hattie B’s in 2015.
