    Hotel Zachary restaurant Mordecai taps Jared Wentworth to head culinary operations
    Folkart Restaurant Management, opening Mordecai restaurant in the Hotel Zachary (3630 N. Clark St.) in April, just snagged itself a Michelin-starred chef. Actually two stars, but who's counting? Jared Wentworth, who garnered a Michelin star each at Longman & Eagle and Dusek's Board & Beer, and who engineered the revamping of Trench ( three stars from me, but quickly abandoned when business was slow), will oversee the culinary operations for Mordecai.
