With a passion for creating and building on Southern flavors, a love for slow cooking, and a complex understanding of whole animal cookery, we can’t wait to see what he whips up in our kitchen. Myles enjoys seeing guests enjoying his food, and he found himself drawn to The Mill because of the attention to detail in every customer experience.

She took the reins when she opened Misty Mountain Bakeshop in Asheville with her husband, Branden Holte, Chef de Cusine at The Mill Kitchen and Bar. When the culinary duo moved back to Atlanta with their daughter, Lauren was naturally lead to our fresh farm to table restaurant with seasonally updated dessert menus. Excited to share her knowledge and her desserts with the community at The Mill Kitchen and Bar, Lauren’s sweet treats are the perfect end to a great meal.
