Chef Mark Militello
​ Chef Mark Militello has left 1 Bleu at the One Resort and Spa (formerly The Regent Bal Harbour) to join The Office, a gastropub in Delray said to be opening in late November.



Last December Militello took the reigns as executive chef of

culinary operations at The Regent Bal Harbour. That was only six months

after the last of his four namesake restaurants, Mark's in Boca Raton's

Mizner Park, closed. The Regent Bal Harbour was sold in June.



The Office is the concept of restaurant impresario David

Manero, owner of Vic and Angelo's restaurants in Delray and Palm Beach.

The menu will feature burgers, seafood and brews.



As for 1 Bleu, there is no word yet on who will take

Militello's place. Director of food and beverage Oscar Morales said

they have a couple of candidates but a final decision hasn't been

reached.



We wonder if Militello's new title will be Chief Culinary Officer...and where he'll be next year.
