Home / Culture / Chaz Lindsay (Parlor Market)


Chaz Lindsay, this year’s Best New Chef winner, has quickly built a name for himself in the Jackson restaurant scene in a relatively short amount of time.

The Jackson native graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., in 2011. He worked at various New York restaurants and then spent six months cooking in Italy before returning home in 2016 to work at Table 100. Lindsay accepted a position as the executive chef of Parlor Market in fall 2017.

Since joining the team at Parlor Market, he has introduced several new menu items including his pasta Romano, which has crushed tomatoes, pancetta, red-pepper flakes, salt, pepper, cheese and olive oil.

Lindsay, who also owns Belhaven Pasta Company, told the Jackson Free Press in January that one of his big focuses for Parlor Market was creating a fresh pasta menu.

“I’m truly humbled and flattered by all my customers’ support in naming me for this honor,” he says of his nomination. “All I can say is thank you, and come have dinner at Parlor Market.” —Mike McDonald
