Lasater is Nashville’s hottest new restaurateur—literally. His Hattie B’s has changed the way hot chicken is viewed in the South. Named one of the “10 Best Chicken Wings in America” by Maxim, the young chef has built Hattie B’s from the ground up, opening two restaurants in three years, and has no plans of slowing down.

A native of Tennessee, John graduated from the French Culinary Institute in New York and worked at Capitol Grille in the Hermitage Hotel, Flyte World Dining & Wine and Porter Road Butcher in Nashville before joining the team at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken in 2012. Upon his arrival, he created the Hattie B’s hot blend they use today, along with designing their signature side dishes.
