A native of Columbia, S.C., Moore attended the Art Institute of Atlanta after being in the Marine Corps. He gained extensive experience being the Executive Chef in kitchens ranging from Atlanta’s Peachtree Club, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Georgia World Congress Center, the Atlanta Braves 755 Club, and Charleston institution Carolina’s. Leaning on his experience he has been a consultant to many restaurants in the Charleston area. Raised in a family that connected with food and ingredients through home-cooked meals and family dinners, Moore developed his passion for food helping gather produce from the family garden, pickling peppers with his grandmother, and picking peaches with his grandfather a peach farmer. Moore brings the values of his upbringing and professional experience to the kitchen at MOMO. His vegetable driven menus will feature regional seafood and game as well as nitrogen milkshakes.
With a goal of tasting his way through the local dining scene, Moore is immersed in Charleston’s flavors as well as its unique and highly multicultural dining scene. "One of the first things I set out to do was to meet as many local suppliers as possible," he says, delighting in the abundance of choice available in Charleston, including seafood, produce and vegetables that set the FARM to STREET movement in motion.
