Bar Margot, located inside Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, opened as a collaboration with restaurateur Ford Fry in 2015 and is now led by Executive Chef Gavin Pera and Restaurant Chef Chad “Sosa” Hester. Bar Margot’s menu injects traditional American and globally inspired cuisines with a Southern infusion. Our award-winning beverage program is led by Lead Bartender Nick Middlebrooks. Since the opening in fall 2015, Bar Margot has quickly become one of Midtown’s most revered and awarded restaurants.

Chad Hester – affectionately known as “Sosa” – was born in Augusta, Georgia, where he grew-up in a traditionally African-American Southern household. In his family, food was prepared with love, and those consuming it were filled with slow-cooked cuisine and a sizeable helping of palatable joy.  It is an instinctive, intangible ingredient that Chef Sosa observed by watching his grandmother, mother and sister prepare family meals for occasions large and small – and now, is engrained in him.  
Today, he defines his cooking style as a fusion of fine-dining and contemporary American cuisine with a dash of Southern influence. Chef Sosa is often lauded for his creativity in the kitchen among Georgia’s culinary insiders, as well as his unwavering commitment to the Atlanta community.
