Chef Paula DaSilva Leaving 3030 Ocean For New Eden Roc Restaurant
According to DaSilva, the Eden Roc is reconceptualizing its restaurant, Gia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar, and contacted her to head the new concept -- a yet-to-be-named steakhouse.
"I'm totally excited because I've been at 3030 for almost 10 years but I've been waiting for the right project to come along and I really think this will be the right project," DaSilva told Short Order. "It'll be a new challenge for me - and a big challenge too."
DaSilva will spend her summer redoing menus and hopes the new restaurant will debut in the early fall. The restaurant will also undergo a redesign.
As for 3030 Ocean, DaSilva says sous chef Jeremy Ford will likely take her spot as chef de cuisine. The restaurant will hold a farewell dinner for DaSilva on May 24. View the menu and more information.
