Ben Gaffney’s love for the restaurant life developed while
tagging along with his chef father, and he has worked in great
restaurants since he was old enough to wield a chef's knife.
Much of Ben's adulthood has been spent in the warm climates of
New Orleans, Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Ben was Chef Emeril Lagasse’s pastry chef in restaurants in New Orleans,
Orlando, and Miami Beach. He credits Chef Emeril for demonstrating how
to balance high energy, a fast pace and working hard while still having
fun in the business. He has been General Manager and Chef at Atticus since 2010.
