Nico Romo, a Lyon, France native, joined Patrick Properties in August 2007 as Executive Chef for Fish Restaurant, Lowndes Grove, The William Aiken House and The American Theater. Today, Fish’s focus is French-Asian. Romo infuses his native French techniques and sensibilities with simple, authentic Asian flavors. Local fish, shrimp, beef, chicken and vegetables are showcased on the menu nightly, and the results are unabashedly delicious.

A 15-year old graduate of The Helene Boucher Culinary Art School in Venissieux, France, Romo honed his skills at two Relais & Chateaux properties: La Pyramide Hotel and Restaurant in Vienne, France, under Master Chef M. Henrioux, and at Restaurant Pierre Orsi in Lyon, France, under Master Chef M. Pierre Orsi. He has held positions at Chez Philippe in the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee and Cielo, also in Memphis. Nico was then recruited by The Ritz Carlton, Atlanta where he served as Sous Chef and later became Executive Chef at The Café at East Andrews in Buckhead. Prior to joining Fish, Romo opened the third location of the B.E.D. restaurant concepts in Atlanta.

In his spare time, he is goalie for a local arena soccer team. His favorite team is Olympique Lyonnais.
