Interview: Michael Lishchynsky of Bourbon Steak Nashville is Ready for the 2019 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival – Happening this Weekend!

"I love talking and meeting new people in general, so when you throw in someone who has a passion for food it’s even better."

The 2019 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival kicks off in just two days!! Can you tell we are SO excited! We caught up with Michael Lishchynsky of Bourbon Steak Nashville to talk about what he looks forward to most!

Why did you want to get involved with the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival? I did the Food & Wine Festival in Jackson Hole, WY last year and had an absolute blast. When I was asked to do the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival there was no way I was going to pass it up.
 
What events will you be featured? The Tasting Tents on Saturday.
 
Do you like meeting foodies at festivals? For Sure! I love talking and meeting new people in general, so when you throw in someone who has a passion for food it’s even better.
 
Is it good to talk to chefs at the festival and swap ideas, or are you a secretive bunch? I like talking to other chefs. You can say I’m an open book when it comes to swapping or sharing ideas. In the end, if a chef likes something enough then they will figure out how to make it no matter if you share it or not.
 
What sets Atlanta apart from all other cities, food-wise? This will actually be my first time to Atlanta, so I’m pretty excited to see what the city has to offer. From what I have been told, Atlanta is a melting pot of chefs from all over and then you toss in that southern hospitality it seems like it would be hard to not get sucked into it.
 
Any new Atlanta restaurants or chefs on your radar that you’re looking forward to checking out? Lazy Betty
 
What is the best music to cook to? There’s no real answer to that. I listen to almost everything. I could be listening to Wu-Tang one day then LCD Soundsystem the next. 
 
Do you stream Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, or classic tapes/cds/vinyls? At home I listen to Vinyls, but at work I steam Apple Music.
 
Who are some of your favorite musicians? Lately I have been listening to  LCD Soundsystems, Cherub, Wu-Tang, Glass Animals, Pretty Lights…
 
Do you have music playing in the kitchen at home and is it different than in the restaurant? Music is always on at home. Even when my wife and I leave, the music in house playing for the dogs to listen to while we’re not there. At work I like to listen to music and let the cooks choose what we listen to.
 
Finally what’s one tip you can give festival goers? Have fun and don’t be scared to talk to chefs! We’re not like what TV sometimes makes us out to be (crazy angry people).
