In the past few months, the Forge has gone through some changes, announcing the departure of Dewey LoSasso and the arrival of Christopher Lee, its new executive chef.
Lee, who was hired by the Forge's owner, Shareef Malnik, in January, comes with a long resumé. He received the James Beard Foundation's Rising Star Chef of the Year award in 2005 and was named Food & Wine's Best New Chef in 2006. He has worked at many New York powerhouses, including Daniel, Jean Georges, Oceana, and the Michelin-starred Gilt and Aureole. Miami diners might remember Lee from Eden, which opened in 2010 and closed in March 2012.
