Todd English Tavern Knocks It Out of The Park

7 September 2017

When you’re taken out to the ballgame these days, it’s surprisingly easier to find Ahi Tuna Poke and Neapolitan-style pizzas than it is to find peanuts and Cracker Jacks. At Todd English Tavern, the restaurant is elevating appetizers, salads, flatbreads, burgers and sandwiches to meet this new age sports arena expectation. Two simple yet flavorful dishes Todd English Tavern has perfected are: Georgia Peanut Butter Wings and Ahi Tuna Poke. 

The Braves season may be coming to a close, but luckily, Live! At The Battery will not. The property is open year-round as an eating, drinking and shopping destination. The restaurant will also be participating in Taste of Atlanta 2017; we can’t wait to have them on site Saturday and Sunday. Enter Todd English Tavern on your restaurant radar before the festival, then buy your ticket to Taste of Atlanta to have a sample at the event. Use code “toddenglish” for $5 off- click for more details and tickets!

Todd English Tavern’s Chef Jimmy Reyes

Chef Jimmy Reyes is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. While his training is based in Classical French cuisine, he would describe his style as “Modern French.” Jimmy’s experience includes nine years at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in various managerial positions. Chef Reyes also held positions in various south Florida establishments at the Westin Diplomat, Restaurant Chef of Torero Tapas Bar & Grill, as well as becoming the Chef De Cuisine at Hilton Hotels where he was in charge of 3 restaurants including Spencer’s for Steak & Chops where he helped the restaurant reach new horizons by combining modern techniques with the classical style of a steakhouse. Chef Jimmy’s culinary roots span overseas to different restaurants Including El Atril, The Malt House, & Brasa.

Jimmy’s transition to Todd English’s Bluezoo as the Chef de Cuisine was a role that helped further develop his unique and modern style; his incredible drive and determination got him promoted to Executive Chef of the restaurant within a year of being there. Soon enough, Jimmy helped raise Bluezoo to one of the top restaurants in Orlando, Participating in many local events. He received different accolades including AAA 4 Diamond Restaurant, voted Top 10 Places to eat in Orlando, featured in Bite Magazine for his vast knowledge of seafood with “The Dish That Made Me” article.

Chef Reyes is passionate about building relationships with local farms, artisans and purveyors in order to source the highest quality ingredients possible, he has been described as someone who pushes the line of creativity always looking for the next big thing. His knowledge of ingredients and techniques both classical and modern has made every dining experience unique. When asked what food means to him he simply replied “food is life.” Chef Reyes then joined Paris Bistro with the task of turning this establishment into one of the Top Restaurants in the Winter Park area. After achieving this goal, he ventured on to Georgia to work with ECI and open Live! at the Battery Atlanta in partnership with Chef Todd English to open his homecoming restaurant: Todd English Tavern.
