The Setai's got a new chef
Beginning tomorrow, (Wednesday), David Werly takes over the job of Setai's executive chef, the position Jonathan Wright ditched to embark on a Barbados adventure. He will be responsible for The Restaurant, The Grill, The Pool & Beach Bar, The Bar & Courtyard, and in-room dining.

Werly's resume includes gigs at Le Cirque Las Vegas and Le Pré Catelan Lenôtre and the Hotel Ritz in Paris, all of which possess one or more Michelin stars. He was trained under Chef Alaine Ducasse.

As to what his new menu will entail, well... he's keeping his cards close. Stay tuned.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
