Chefs know good food, so we wanted to know where they eat when they’re not cooking. In this series, we ask a local chef, bartender, or server to share their favorite restaurants in town and what they order there. This week, Piedmont Culinary Guild founder and Sabor’s director of operations Kris Reid discloses her personal favorites.
