Years of Participation
Following graduation, he trained under James Beard Award-winning Chef Linton Hopkins at fine-dining pioneer Restaurant Eugene. After three years as Executive Sous Chef, Norton craved a change of pace and headed to the Lowcountry to join the team at McCrady’s in Charleston, SC in 2015. First serving as Sous Chef and then promoted to Executive Chef shortly thereafter, Norton enjoyed fostering a creative environment at McCrady’s, with a fresh approach to fine dining.
In June 2021, Norton reunited with his Neighborhood Dining Group family as Executive Chef of Husk Nashville. Helming the restaurant’s ever changing menu, he works closely with local farmers and purveyors to source the season’s freshest ingredients in addition to utilizing the bountiful on-site garden.
