It's still unclear where Boqueria's founding chef Seamus Mullen will land after leaving the restaurant back in July, but the owners have finally found his replacement. Yann de Rochefort announces today that he has chosen Marc Vidal, a Spanish chef who most recently won attention (semifinalist for a Beard award) at Solea at the W South Beach Hotel, as his new man in charge for his Soho and Flatiron restaurants.
Vidal hails from Barcelona and has worked at El Bulli, L’Arpege and Alain Ducasse. So, he's probably got his Spanish food down. Also: handsome. Watch your back Allegretti.
