Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Hall rerouted to Birmingham after high school at the age of 17—and wow are we glad! He’s brought even more magic to this Magic City of ours with roles like Executive Chef for Rodney Scott’s BBQ, Operations Manager for three projects at the Pizitz Food Hall and most currently Culinary Director for Post Office Pies.

Hall also spent some time in the kitchen at Bottega, where Frank Stitt taught him how to cook, as well as at Chez Fonfon and Hot and Hot Fish Club.

He’s even acted as a resident chef for Jones Valley Teaching Farm’s Twilight Supper—a dinner series that raised funds for urban community gardens.
