Zack Northcutt was promoted to the role of executive chef of Swift’s Attic, following the departure of Mat Clouser. Northcutt, who has served as chef de cuisine since the restaurant opened, has previously served as executive chef at Haddington’s and Mulberry. The restaurant expects a seamless transition, as Northcutt, who has taken more of a leadership role in the past year, developed Swift’s new spring menu with his chef de cuisine Matthew Taylor.

Clouser is leaving the restaurant world to pursue a career in teaching, according to restaurant owners, who are also in the pre-opening stages of their downtown Chinese restaurant Wu Chow. Despite his departure from Swift’s, Clouser will consult with restaurant ownership on projects, including Wu Chow.

“Mat Clouser has been a tremendous asset to the Swift’s Attic team and we wouldn’t be where we are without him,” owner Stuart Thomajan said.
