Hello Sailor | Cornel

As the chef/owner of Kindred in Davidson, NC, and Hello, Sailor in Cornelius, NC, Joe Kindred firmly believes that utilization and appreciation for quality product speaks for itself, especially when it fosters fruitful relationships with purveyors and, ultimately, guests. The family owned and operated restaurants, run by Chef Joe and his wife Katy, both have been named on bon appetit’s Best New Restaurants lists, in 2015 and 2018. Chef Joe was a semi-finalist for the James Beard Best Chef: Southeast in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Kindred lives in his hometown of Davidson with Katy, their three kids Alba, Luca, and Graydon, and their dogs. When he’s not working, the avid sports fan roots for his home teams, goes swimming, and visits the farmers’ market with his daughter.
