E. Rivers dad, supporter Linton Hopkins’ Restaurant Eugene gets AJC nod

We’re not exactly restaurant critics over here, but we know a great APS parent when we see one, so we couldn’t more thrilled to learn that E. Rivers Elementary parent/supporter and rock-star chef Linton Hopkins had his Restaurant Eugene named the AJC‘s 2009 Restaurant of the Year. (Guess they’d seen enough after 10 months.)

Hopkins has been extremely active in supporting E. Rivers, which we reported in the Spring 2009 edition of The Atlanta Educator. (Read the issue here; the feature is on Page 19.) His wellness efforts also have been reported here and here, and is a member of the APS Wellness Committee.

This isn’t the first honor this year for Hopkins. We couldn’t help but chuckle at the notion that, despite his years on the culinary scene, he was named one of Food & Wine magazine’s Best New Chefs 2009. He also was nominated for a 2009 James Beard Award as one of the nation’s top chefs.

Congratulations!
