Chef Gregory Collier has always had a special place in his heart for food and its preparations. Since opening his first restaurant in 2012 with his wife and business partner Subrina Collier, Greg has maintained a momentum that is strikingly reflective of his Memphis, Tenn. upbringing: spirited, unwavering and unapologetically Black. Greg, a multiple James Beard Award nominee, is long a champion of locally-sourced food, working to ensure urban and rural farmers are supported in their efforts to make a living and provide quality products. In 2020, the couple opened Leah & Louise, a restaurant featuring modern interpretations of Southern classics that honor the style of cooking and ingredients you might see in Mississippi river valley cities like Memphis, Jackson, Mississippi and New Orleans. Esquire Magazine named Leah & Louise one of the best new restaurants of 2020. In 2021, the couple formed the BayHaven Restaurant Group and held the inaugural BayHaven Food & Wine Festival in Charlotte, and in early 2022, they announced plans for four new restaurant concepts to open later in 2022 at Camp North End in Charlotte.

He and his family now live in Portland, Oregon where he writes, curates beverages for Takibi, and serves clients of his consulting firm, Mixography Inc.
