OurTeam

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

As Executive Chef of Decca, 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 Website Headshot

Cody Stone ~ Chef de Cuisine

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 Chef de Cuisine 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.
