Check out all of the dishes prepared in our wood-fired oven, including the 2017 Best in Atlanta MacNCheese.
About the Owners
Four Forks Restaurant and Madcap’s Bar are jointly owned by Marsha Anderson Bomar, Billy Jones and Bruno Taillefer. Marsha and Billy have known each other for quite some time, having met while serving on the Duluth City Council together since 2009. Marsha owned Chocolate Perks, downtown Duluth restaurant and community gathering spot. She wanted to get back into the restaurant world since selling that business in 2012. Billy has played around with the idea of owning a bar for a while. Bruno is a downtown Duluth business and property owner who really believes in the City and wanted to be part of this new venture as well.
We bring along partners Chef Aaron and Aaron (General Manager) to continue the path to serving you the best experience. Aaron (GM) is originally from Arkansas and has lived in metro Atlanta for 25 years. He has worked in the restaurant industry for 23. Aaron has three kids and an awesome beard.
In 2017, the owner of Piatto Fresh Kitchen was ready to sell the restaurant to spend more time with his family. The wheels began turning and in October the transition became official.
When Marsha and Billy first began working together on the City Council, they recognized how different they were and worked hard to understand each other’s perspectives. Along the way, they’ve developed a great relationship and have been able to help initiate change and progress in the Duluth community, laying the groundwork for their partnership as owners of Four Forks Restaurant and Madcap’s Bar.
About the Chef
Chef Aaron Avers decided to be a chef at age five, stubbornly clinging to this path when others told him he might change his mind. He admits he’d been reluctant to go to culinary school wanting instead to learn on the job and work his way up.
Aver’s menu defies categorization. Plates from various cuisines baffle food writers trying to nail down the menus origins. This playful attitude, along with special in house items like his hand churned butter, made the perfect match to create our unique menu.
“I knew I wanted to be a Chef since I was 5. My mom would bring me into the kitchen and shove spices and herbs in my face and say, ‘Smell this’ and ‘Taste this’.” – Chef Aaron
