MIAMI BEACH - An eater tipster informed us that chef Chad Ford made a quick exit and already left recently opened The Downstairs at Hotel Astor. Hotel Astor confirms that this is true. As for the menu, it's remaining the same for now. Currently on board at The Downstairs is chef Carlos Nevarez, who's worked at spots like Hotel Victor, DeVito's and Lolita. "My style fits The Downstairs concept perfectly because my cooking is a fusion between classic and fun and the cocktail program will also complement that perfectly," says Nevarez. [EaterWire]
