Executive Chef Annie Pettry

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.”

Sous Chef de Cuisine Cody Stone

Since day one, Cody Stone has fostered an infectious drive for passion and excellence that has been an integral part of shaping the Decca kitchen. Cody, a Louisville native and a culinary school misfit, has worked in many of Louisville’s finest restaurants such as 21C’s Proof on Main and the late 732 Social. Among these he cites that it wasn’t until he became Sous Chef of Proof on Main under renowned Chef Michael Paley that he was transformed from a “turn and burn cook” into a cook with a deep respect for details and technique. At Decca he cultivates this respect while he works closely with Chef Annie, collaborating on menus, sourcing the best products, and maintaining kitchen operations.
