Some chef news around town: first, chef Spencer O’Meara has left ~PARAGON~ after 12 years in the kitchen; he is taking a break and enjoying some time off—we’ll see what he decides is his next move. The new chef is Kevin Scott, and is coming over from Scala’s Bistro.

Golden Bear Restaurant Group (MoMo’s, Pedro’s Cantina, and Pete’s Tavern) has appointed Tony Flier as the executive chef for the company. He will be working closely with the chefs at all three restaurants and will oversee menu development for the group. Flier, a 35-year vet in the kitchen, has launched Nola, Kingfish, and Fish Market in the Bay Area.

And according to Eater, Roland Passot of ~LA FOLIE~ has brought on Michael Hung (previously Bushi-Tei) as chef de cuisine.
