Hired guns

Since 2014, Gunshow has welcomed creative, innovative and ground breaking chefs from around the country and Canada to join us for our annual Guest Chef Dinner Series called Hired Guns. Gunshow was founded around constant innovation and creativity and Hired Guns is an extension of that concept allowing us to learn from and get exposed to other innovative chefs. 6 times year we invite chefs to cook with us, show us something different and bring their unique style and cuisine to Atlanta diners. At Hired Guns, every guests will try 10 different dishes. Season tickets sell out rather quickly when they go on sale every November so we try and save 2 extra tickets that we occasionally release prior to each dinner. Sign up for our newsletter to get the scoop on which chefs are coming when and for information on the release of ticket sales.

We have been fortunate to welcome many Hired Guns over the years. Guest Chefs have included John Currence, Tandy Wilson, Vishwesh Bhatt, Brian Voltaggio, Niven Patel, Jeremiah Langhorne, Kelsey Barnard Clark, Edourado Jordan, Vivian Howard, JJ Johnson, Greg Denton, and Gabrielle Quinonez Denton and Kristen Kish to name a few.
