Spoon Welcomes Chef Jamilka Borges
Spoon is welcoming a new chef to its culinary team: Chef Jamilka Borges! Relocating from Bar Marco, where the restaurant was placed on Bon Appetit’s “Top 50 New Restaurants” list during her stay, Borges, originally from Puerto Rico, is excited to bring her particular brand of cooking to Spoon. “My [culinary] background is Italian and French cuisine,” Borges says, “but I’m definitely really interested in playing with my Caribbean and Latin background.” After knowing Brian Pekarcik, chef and partner in S+P Restaurant Group, for years, she’s thrilled to join his project and introduce some of her loyal farmers and vendors to the kitchen at Spoon. “I’m really excited to see what they’re doing!”
