Christian "Lucke" Bell

Chef Christian “Lucke” Bell is the executive chef of Oreatha’s at The Point, the second Atlanta restaurant from Chef Deborah VanTrece, one of the South’s most well-known culinary personalities, best-selling author, and founder of the VanTrece Hospitality Group.

Oreatha’s, which is named after Chef VanTrece’s mother, is located in Atlanta’s historic Cascade Heights neighborhood, and focuses on favorite family dishes prepared by mothers around the world.

Chef Lucke brings a passion for food that was instilled in him at a young age by his parents and maternal grandmother. Their early influences fed Chef Lucke’s curiosity for cooking and led to him honing his own cooking style, which he describes as flavor-forward, fusion-focused, and unconventional. So, it was only natural that Chef VanTrece tapped Chef Lucke as the executive chef for Oreatha’s.
