After numerous James Beard nominations and 8 years of work, Zach Bell is leaving Palm Beach and the Boulud empire and taking his talents to the golf club, leading the kitchen at the Addison Reserve Country Club in Delray Beach.
The new executive chef at Cafe Boulud will be announced this afternoon by the one and only Daniel Boulud at the Brazilian Court. Bell's replacement is being promoted from within Boulud's Dinex dining group. Stay tuned for the announcement.---Matt Tylka [EaterWire]
