Executive Chef Thomas Card

Prior to joining Counting House in early 2017, Thomas Card worked as executive sous chef at The Fearrington House Inn under the direction of James Beard Foundation Best Chef semifinalist Colin A. Bedford, where he helped manage all of the property’s restaurants ranging from banquets and catering to casual and fine dining. During his tenure, the Fearrington House Restaurant was named one of the “100 Best Restaurants in America for 2016” by OpenTable diners. With over 18 years of experience in the restaurant industry, his resume also includes time at the Umstead Hotel and Spa. Card is excited to become a part of Durham’s dynamic community of restaurants and to continue to work with local producers and ingredients from the region.
