Elite Bistro changes chefs
Just a month after its official opening, Elite Bisto (2195 Lee Road) has a new head chef. Executive Chef Alvin Harris, profiled in the November issue of the Heights Observer, has left. Assistant General Manager Leanna Miller said the restaurant is moving in a “new direction.”
Elite Bistro’s new head chef is Anthony Ford, who worked for the last 20 years at J. Alexander’s Lyndhurst Grill. Miller said the restaurant has a new menu, keeping some items from its original menu, and a more extensive Sunday brunch menu. Miller described the cuisine as Contemporary American.
Elite Bistro had its grand opening at the site of the former Fix Bistro on Sept. 30. Despite the similarities in names, the restaurants are unrelated. The interior has been remodeled and includes a full bar.
