INLET BEACH — amici 30A Italian Kitchen, set to open this fall at 30Avenue, has announced Manolack Vongsouvanh as its executive chef.

Known as "Chef Lock," Vongsouvanh also has opened 30A Private Chef, providing personal chef and event catering services; and Seacrust Pizza in Peddlers Pavilion at Seacrest.
Vongsouvanh, born in Laos and raised in Utica, New York, will bring his passion for classic Italian cuisine to amici 30A, which brands itself as an eclectic, family-friendly restaurant. Menu highlights include fresh made pasta dishes; rustic Bolognese; signature dishes such as Neapolitan Beach Pizza Pie; and monthly sustainable farmer dishes highlighting local seafood and vegetables.

"I cook with conviction, aiming to meet the challenge of perfection," Vongsouvanh said. "My desire is to create a plate full of emotions that ignites gratification after the first bite. Ultimate satisfaction is achieved for me when I look out into the dining room and hear the enthusiasm of guests and nods of approval from one table to another."

The restaurant on U.S. 98 across from the Walton County 30A intersection still is hiring cooks, managers and beverage managers via amici30a.com.
