the topo Team

Trey Cleveland
Executive Chef

Trey is a New Orleans native and moved to North Carolina in 1989 after graduating from The Culinary Institute of America in New York State. Trey joined Top of the Hill in 2000. His influence and culinary insight can be seen in every aspect of the TOPO experience, from the main restaurant and two bars to the Great Room Complex. 

Matt Butler
Head Catering Chef

A native of upstate New York, Matt found he couldn’t stay out of the kitchen after what was supposed to be a short stint at a restaurant upon graduating from college. He has opened restaurants for Nancy Lopez and Arnold Palmer in The Villages of Florida and moved on to open and operate multiple Triangle eateries before joining the Great Room Team in the fall of 2010. Matt and his culinary staff work hard to tailor each menu around the individuality of the client, embracing the challenge of creating dishes and memories that last a lifetime.
