As the owner and executive chef of Provencal-style restaurant, AIX, and adjoining wine bar, Tin Tin, chef Nick Leahy showcases his true passion for globally influenced, locally sourced cuisine. Paying homage to the classic French phrase, ce moment, or “in this moment”, chef Leahy invites all who gather at AIX & Tin Tin to embrace the Mediterranean culture of Aix-en-Provence by slowing down, experiencing joy and creating memories with loved ones, all while savoring life’s simple pleasures — many times found in cuisine.
As a true champion and purveyor of the farm-to-table movement in Atlanta, chef Leahy celebrates Georgia’s small producers through his menus, allowing fresh, sustainably sourced ingredients to shine. By showcasing contemporary takes on his family’s classic French recipes, chef Leahy highlights French inspired, Mediterranean influenced cuisine, with each of his dishes featuring thoughtful presentation and inventive flavors. Throughout AIX & Tin Tin’s menu and interiors are a number of elements that are near and dear to chef Leahy’s heart, most specifically wine bar, Tin Tin, named after his great aunt and the matriarch of his family.
