Junior Borges

Just as I was naming Uchi the best new restaurant of 2015, its on-site chef, Junior Borges, was departing. For where, though? Well, now we have the answer: FT33. He’s moved from the Uptown’s hottest spot to take over the kitchen in the Design District’s hottest spot as its new executive chef. Founder Matt McCallister will continue to work his magic at his new place, Filament. Congrats all around.
