Cody native Nathan Kardos graduated from Cody High School and moved to Colorado to attend the Culinary School of the Rockies (now the Boulder Campus of the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts) where he received his diploma in 2008.

Nathan went to work at various restaurants in Denver including Panzano, the city's top Italian restaurant, where he trained under Elise Wiggens as a sous chef. Moving back to Cody in 2013, Nathan worked as a personal chef for a prominent local family.

Nathan has opened Trailhead Bar Grill Wood Fired Pizza in Cody, Wyoming after two years of planning.

Keeping it western but contemporary, Trailhead serves high quality and recognizable cuisine that supports local farmers and ranchers with sustainable practices who supply high quality, accessible ingredients.
