Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton has announced a new chef de cuisine for the start of the 2013 summer season. Juan Carlos Landazuri joins executive chef Jason Weiner in the French bistro‘s kitchen, where he will continue the strong commitment to using locally farmed products and local produce in order to support the East End community.
Landazuri comes to Almond after spending the last 10 years cooking at several New York City restaurants including Opia French Bistro, Tao, Delicatessen, Tavern on the Green, Lugo Caffe and Veritas Restaurant. Most recently he worked alongside noted restaurateur Alison Price Becker at Alison Eighteen, where he was invited to cook at The James Beard House. “His vast experience in distinct kitchens across New York City make him an ideal addition to the Almond team,” notes a representative for the restaurant.
