Matt Lightner Wire


Eater NY checks in with Atera chef (and onetime Portland resident) Matt Lightner to talk about opening challenges, being welcomed by the NY chef community, and finding his voice. "I didn't come to New York to do Pacific Northwest cuisine. I came to New York to work on my style of food and have a sense of what the product is here... Maybe one day this place morphs itself into something that is considered a quintessential New York City restaurant, but right now I'm working on what I just mentioned, as well as developing my own style."
