A couple bits of hiring news: over at ~ZARÉ AT FLY TRAP~, chef-owner Hoss Zaré has hired Zack Freitas (Station 1, Commis, Manresa) as his chef de cuisine. Scoop mentions while the Persian-Mediterranean menu will keep its focus, there will be an updated menu in January.
I always like to keep an eye on where pastry chef Majkin Klare is working: she is currently at ~HEIRLOOM CAFÉ~. Her mint-chocolate chip profiteroles and cheddar shortcakes with brown sugar apples are on the menu, along with the usual fresh-baked cookie and affogato combo.
