James Beard Nominee & Michelin Star Earner Jacques Van Staden Buys Chophouse

New, 4 comments

Jacques Van Staden, former executive chef of Las Vegas’ Alizé at the Top of the Palms, during which time it earned a Michelin star, is the new chef/owner of the "revitalized and reimagined" Chophouse Miami Bistro & Lounge. "I loved the location and thought the Chophouse space had such potential,” says Van Staden, a James Beard Award nominee who has spent the last five years as vice president and master chef of culinary operations for Celebrity Cruises. “When the opportunity arose for me to take it over and remake it as my own I couldn’t resist.” The allegedly moderately priced menu will consist of "globally-inspired small plates, spectacular sushi, flatbreads, chop block specials – a Chophouse version of a bento box – fresh fish and premium cuts of meat." The restaurant remains open for business while Van Staden and co. oversee the new menu development and restaurant renovations expected to debut in November. [EaterWire]
