Matt Lackey, the 27 year-old executive chef of Flyte World Dining and Wine, has been named an Eater Young Gun. He joins 14 other young, budding talents from across the country in a list that includes chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, cocktail pros, and general managers. These are the junior statesmen of the culinary world who have most distinguished themselves this year, and who are its next stars.
The Eater Young Guns Class of 2013 will be celebrated at a gala event in Los Angeles on Monday, June 24. Young Guns Eve, a public tasting event featuring many of the winning chefs, goes down the night before on June 23. Tickets are still available.
