A passionate and uncompromising commitment to quality, a respect for technique, and an artistic sensibility that results in a balanced yet exhilarating eating experience.
Annie Pettry ~ Chef / Owner
Annie Pettry brings to the table a passionate and uncompromising commitment to quality, a respect for technique, and an artistic sensibility that results in a balanced yet exhilarating eating experience. With a nuanced palate and an ingredient driven mindset, she creates her own unique take on American cuisine. Raised in Asheville, North Carolina, which proudly claims itself as a “foodtopian Society,” Annie’s childhood was steeped with influential food experiences including growing vegetables, foraging for mushrooms, trout fishing and countless hours in the kitchen learning from her parents’ global cooking style.
Pettry was named one of Restaurant Hospitality’s “15 To Watch in 2015,” a 2014 & 2015 Food & Wine “The People’s Best New Chef” nominee, a 2014 Star Chefs Rising Star, and was the winner of the 2013 Louisville Cochon 555 Heritage BBQ competition. Annie can be seen competing on season 14 of Bravo Media’s Emmy and James Beard Award-winning “Top Chef.”
Cody Stone ~ Executive Chef
Chef Cody Stone loves vegetables but he won’t touch a tomato outside of tomato season. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Stone is a founding team member of Decca restaurant. Brought on by chef Annie Pettry in 2012, Stone has progressed through the Decca kitchen from cook, to sous chef, to his current role as Executive Chef where he creates seasonal menus and leads daily kitchen operations at Decca.
In 2003, Stone enrolled in culinary school at Sullivan University where he briefly pursued a degree in the culinary arts. Although school gave him a sense of structure, it was the day-to-day labor of professional kitchens that really developed his sense of place. Prior to his time with Decca he has held various roles at restaurants throughout Louisville, including sous chef at the award-winning 732 Social and 21C’s Proof on Main.
Although his love for food drove him to where he is today, Stone credits Kentucky’s diverse climate for impacting his cooking the most. Hiking, gardening at home, and watching the seasons change all inspire Stone to experiment with the abundance of local and regional farms and native ingredients that define Decca’s cuisine.
Daniel Callaway ~ G.M.
Daniel Callaway joins Decca’s team by way of New Orleans. A former French Horn player in the Louisiana Philharmonic, Daniel lives with a passion for the arts, food, and wine. Though born and raised in England, Daniel has found his home in Kentucky. He lives with his violinist wife Sara, their dog Theo, and their cat Marta.
Chad Sheffield ~ Partner
Chad Sheffield, a Louisville native, has spent the past two decades working in the restaurant industry, including San Francisco’s Coco500. His creative adventures have included music booking, starting his own theater company, and acting.
Kelsey Norris ~ Partner
Chad and Kelsey moved to Louisville from San Francisco in 2010 to open a restaurant that combined their love of food, wine, visual art, live music, and record collecting. Kelsey Norris, originally from Jasper, Indiana, received a BA in English Literature from the University of Louisville and studied Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She is currently a resident at the UNC School of Medicine.
