Meet Our Team

John Chastain


John is passionate about supporting local, natural food and those who produce it. He believes that you and your family will be healthier eating clean food, untainted by hormones, antibiotics and chemicals.  Science has proven this to be true.

John conceived Gather Americana as more than a restaurant. Gather is a multi-platform business designed to support local food in many ways, from our food service featuring the best of natural foods to events pairing these foods with local craft beers and excellent wines, to being a drop-off point for local farm CSAs.

But John also believes that life is about balance.  Hence, the fabulous Gather Bar, featuring 24 craft draft beers and many bottled and canned craft beers, a finely tailored wine selection, an extensive assortment of distilled spirits, and crafty bartenders to put all the pieces together for you.

There are many, many reasons and rewards for supporting Gather Americana.  It's not about John.  It's about you, your family, your health and your happiness.
