As we reported last Thursday in the Rumor Mill, 1500 Degrees at the Eden Roc, soon to be renamed and reconceived, has experienced a mass exodus including that of its executive chef, Paula DaSilva, who is returning to her old cooking grounds of 3030 Ocean at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale.

“My time at 3030 Ocean was instrumental in my development as a chef,” said DaSilva, a Hell’s Kitchen runner up.  “Returning to Harbor Beach gives me a wonderful opportunity to honor its past and be a part of its exciting new future.”

The resort’s pretty psyched too. “We’re thrilled to welcome back Paula,” says property General Manager Kimberly Wilson.  “There are many exciting things in the works.  We see Paula’s return here as part of this property’s ongoing evolution and growth as a dining and social hotspot for visitors and locals alike.”

DaSilva’s stint at 3030 Ocean begins on August 1.
