Stephen Herman

With a passion for cooking and an innovative approach to modern American cuisine, Chef Stephen delights locals with a HAVEN for extraordinary cuisine. Herman has been a part of the celebrated culinary team since the restaurant’s grand opening in 2003, and now brings his unique touch to the HAVEN menu.

Growing up in Knoxville, Tennessee, Stephen would watch in awe as his mother, an exceptional baker, would spend hours in the kitchen. This sparked Stephen’s love for cooking at a young age, and he has never looked back. Inspired by his mother, Herman decided to pursue a culinary career.

While studying for a culinary arts degree at Johnson and Wales University, Stephen worked with renowned Chef Bob Waggoner at the prestigious Charleston Grill. His desire to excel and his devotion to Chef Waggoner's mentoring garnered a special invitation by Chef Waggoner to cook in some of France's finest restaurants.

Upon graduating magna cum laude, Stephen set his sights on the Atlanta culinary scene. Chef Joel Antune recognized his achievements and immediately brought him on board at Joel, one of Atlanta's finest French restaurants. Stephen's tenure at Joel refined his skills of classic and modern French cooking.

He left this Atlanta fixture to become an integral part of the HAVEN culinary team. As executive Chef, Stephen presents a seasonal menu of creative and modern American comfort food.

Seasonal American Comfort

Haven is located in the heart of Brookhaven in a popular historical neighborhood one mile north of Buckhead. An upscale urban eatery, featuring dark rustic woods, warm earth tones and textured wall finishes with soft amber lighting, Haven creates a sense of comfort and style as you dine. Haven’s Wine Library Wall streams floor to ceiling and houses red wines sourced from America’s top vineyards. The kitchen is open with our counter set lower for guests to enjoy the sizzle and action of cooking.

The cuisine, brought to life by Executive Chef Stephen Herman, is modern American influenced by French, continental and hints of new southern. Seasonal menus are rotated throughout the year and offer a gourmet experience that is unique to Haven.
