about the kitchen

The Kitchen at Summit Chase is a Farm to Table Restaurant located inside of Summit Chase Country Club and is open to the public. 

No membership is required.

The best memories and the best meals are homemade. Summit Chase knows that. The Kitchen, our farm-to-table style restaurant, is designed with those homemade moments in mind. Our vision is for guests to gather at The Kitchen without feeling like they’ve missed out on any of the joys of sharing a meal in their own home. This is why we’ve curated a dining experience that includes a menu full of home cooked style meals filled with fresh, locally sourced ingredients along with a simplistic, southern atmosphere to mimic the charm of kitchen table dining.

ALEX FRIEDMAN

Executive Chef

Introducing our new Executive Chef for The Kitchen at Summit Chase, Alex Friedman. An award-winning chef with a wealth of culinary experience, Chef Alex graduated magnum cum laude from Johnson & Wales Culinary University in Charleston, SC before being recruited by the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, where he quickly moved up the ranks to become sous chef, focusing on traditional French cuisine.

During his time at the Biltmore Estate, Chef Alex entered the international La Chaine des Rotisseurs Young Chef Competition and placed first in the Southeastern regional competition and second in the national competition where he was the youngest competitor in the nation! After leaving the Biltmore, Chef Alex was hired by Pastis Restaurant and Bar in Roswell as a sous chef and later went on to become the executive chef of the award-winning French bistro, Anis Café & Bistro in Atlanta.  

But his story doesn’t end there! With a distinct culinary vision for creating seasonally influenced, international cuisine, Chef Alex opened the highly acclaimed P’cheen International Bistro & Pub in the now bustling Old Fourth Ward of Atlanta. He then went on to compete on the Food Network’s CHOPPED in 2012—S12 E7 for fans of the show. 

Most recently, Chef Alex helmed the kitchen of Bistro Off Broad in historic downtown Winder. Over the years, he has built relationships with local farmers and culinary artisans. He believes in sourcing beautiful local products from the many hard-working and talented farmers that are the backbone of Georgia’s agricultural and farming industry. So it’s no surprise that in 2020, Chef Alex was honored by Georgia Grown and the Georgia Department of Agriculture by being named one of six Georgia Grown Chefs of 2020!

Now, as the new executive chef of The Kitchen at Summit Chase, Chef Alex looks forward to bringing his creative and inspirational farm-to-table cuisine to our neck of the woods. We are excited to welcome him, and welcome YOU, to Snellville’s newest destination dining experience!
