Chef Jamie DeRosa No Longer With Atlantic Ocean Club and Buddha Sky Bar

The Atlantic Ocean Club opened to great fanfare just over a month ago (January 24) and its companion lounge, Buddha Sky Bar is scheduled to open tonight, March 4th. But already, there is one major change -- no more Chef Jamie DeRosa.

DeRosa's varied influences and culinary-expertise were

driving forces in both of the venues' concepts.  He designed Atlantic Ocean Club's menu to feature sustainable

seafood and a farm-to-table approach. Buddha Sky Bar's cuisine was

largely influenced by his travels throughout Asia with plans to

offer Chinese food and sushi. An impressive resume boasts work with Wolfgang Puck

Dining Group, Chef Allen, the Michelin-starred Fat Duck in England, and

Domus in Beijing (read more in part I and part II

of Clean Plate Charlie's interviews with DeRosa).

Despite the significant influence DeRosa had in the direction of the two establishments, a public relations representative of Atlantic Management Group confirmed that DeRosa is no longer the chef. At this time, DeRosa declined to comment.
