Paula DaSilva Talks Fort Lauderdale and Revamping 3030 Ocean

When it was announced that Paula Da Silva, chef at farm-to-table restaurant 1500 Degrees inside the historic Eden Roc Miami Beach would move to Fort Lauderdale's 
3030 Ocean, Miami's loss was Fort Lauderdale's gain.


DaSilva returned to Broward County, the place where she began her well-publicized career under chef Dean Max way back in 2000. In July it was announced that Max and 3030 would part ways.
