Linton Hopkins
Chef and Founder, Resurgens Hospitality Group

Linton Hopkins is the internationally acclaimed chef and owner of Resurgens Hospitality, the Atlanta-based group that includes local favorites Restaurant Eugene, Holeman and Finch Public House, Holeman and Finch Bottle Shop, H&F Burger, Hop’s Chicken and C. Ellet’s. The Atlanta native is known for his deceptively simple cooking style that celebrates local produce and community-driven cuisine, with restaurants that embody his Southern heritage.

With deep Atlanta roots, Hopkins is a graduate of Westminster and Emory University, as well as the Culinary Institute of America. In 2004, he opened Restaurant Eugene with his wife Gina, the co-founder and co-CEO of Resurgens Hospitality. The duo proceeded to open Holeman and Finch Public House in 2008, followed by Holeman and Finch Bottle Shop in 2011, two locations of H&F Burger and Hop’s Chicken at Ponce City Market. They most recently opened C. Ellet’s in summer 2017, a modern American steakhouse in The Battery Atlanta.

Hopkins received the prestigious award of James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef: Southeast in 2012 and was named champion of Iron Chef: Atlanta, moving on to take the silver medal on Iron Chef: America after facing Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto.

Hopkins and Gina are true stewards to the Atlanta community. The two co-founded the Peachtree Road Farmers Market, and began working hand-in-hand with Delta Airlines in 2013 to provide the menu on international flights from Atlanta to Europe. Additionally, Hopkins continues a treasured partnership with the Atlanta Botanical Garden, serving as consulting chef with each of the Garden’s culinary programs.

The Atlanta Braves are also a valued partner of the Hopkins’ team, with two H&F Burger outposts at new SunTrust Park, in addition to C. Ellet’s steakhouse directly outside the stadium.

Hopkins and Gina, along with their son and daughter, share a passion for cooking at home, surrounded by family. They are committed to and involved in the ongoing good-food movement, with endless support of the community and dedicated efforts to making Atlanta a better place for food and experiences through local ingredients and farmer connectivity. Linton has served as President of the Southern Foodways Alliance and partnered with Michelle Obama to celebrate the First Lady’s Chef’s Move to Schools Initiative, and additionally supports the James Beard Women in Culinary Leadership Program. He insists that making mayonnaise from scratch, and teaching others to do the same, can change the world.
