Kendall's Brasserie has a new executive chef in its Downtown kitchen. Jean Pierre Bosc, the former owner of the now shuttered Cafe des Artistes and Mimosa, has joined the Patina property, bringing with him a Michelin-star heavy history that includes a job at Jean Paul Lacombe's Leon de Lyon (Bosc was born near Lyon) and stints with fellow French chefs including Paul Bocuse, Michel Chabran, and Michel Rostang, the latter two later sharing his kitchen over guest stints at Santa Monica's former Fennel. Bosc says in a statement that he'd missed the kitchen, finding that "So much of being a restaurateur required me to step away from what I loved best- cooking." He's now adding his own charcuterie to the menu at Kenbdall's and dishes like a cod brandade cake with piquillo pepper coulis and Marseille bouillabaisse.
