When it comes to playing with fire, Pyre Provisions is all business. The Covington restaurant, which opened in November, employs an original approach to wood-fired smoking, grilling and more.
Chef Jeff Mattia developed his style during stints in the kitchens of celebrity chefs Tom Colicchio and Todd English, as a sous chef at Restaurant August and as executive chef of The American Sector at the National World War II Museum. At Pyre, he uses barbecue and injecting techniques and draws on local ingredients and flavors from around the world.
