Member Benefits from Chef Javier Viera

Javier Viera

Not only has Javier Viera worked in the hospitality industry for over 15 years, the executive chef of Communitas Hospitality which includes 10th & Piedmont, G’s Midtown and HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern, comes from a family with a passion for cooking. The son of a baker and pastry chef, he always loved when friends and family gathered to share a meal. These fond memories inspired him to become a chef so that he could help create similar experiences for his guests. From his humble start as a busboy in Stamford, CT., he continued to develop his culinary skills over the years and land his first executive chef position at the young age of 23.

Currently, Viera oversees G’s Midtown, 10th & Piedmont and HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern. The chef’s modern Argentinian and Italian style of cooking influences the menus, as does the avid gardener’s commitment to using only the freshest, local ingredients. As executive chef, he also manages the kitchen staff’s preparation and execution at each restaurant, develops catering menus and controls food and labor costs.

Most recently, Viera served as the executive chef of Divan Restaurant in Atlanta for three years. Prior to that, he spent time as executive chef of Chart House in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., a corporate trainer at Morton’s Steakhouse in Manhattan and director of operations for the opening parties of Trump Towers. He also worked in multiple hotels (Doubletree, Hilton) in the Atlanta area.

In 2011, he competed and won the interactive cooking competition, Culinary Fight Night. In 2014, 10th and Piedmont’s chicken and waffles dish won the “Hotlanta Fried Chicken” battle on Travel Channel’s Chow Masters. When he’s not in the kitchen, Viera enjoys hiking and being outdoors.

Fresh Take on a Midtown Favorite

Longtime Atlanta favorite, Gilbert’s Café & Bar is beginning a new and exciting chapter. After serving the Midtown neighborhood for 14 years, the restaurant will cease to be Gilbert’s on Monday, December 2 and open doors as G’s, a new American gastropub, on Saturday, December 7. Owners Sean and Gilbert Yeremyan are renovating the space, updating the décor and introducing a new menu full of comfort food favorites by executive chef Javier Viera.

“We are so proud to be a part of such a wonderful community,” said Gilbert Yeremyan. “While we have always made changes over the years to improve Gilbert’s, we made the decision to start something completely new and reopen as G’s. We adapted to bring the experience our guests’ demand with new food and drinks to enjoy a fun, dynamic energy that is G’s. The change represents a renaissance of sorts with new talents, new ideas and new tastes for our guests to enjoy.”
