This week, we’re waving goodbye and wishing good luck to chef Scot Jones, who is leaving his post at the Mustard Seed Market in Bath Township and heading to the Los Angeles area, where he will be executive chef of a new vegan restaurant.
Jones, an Akron native, has been a chef in local restaurants for years, most notably when he was at the helm of rocker Chrissie Hynde’s VegiTerranean in Akron until it closed in late 2011.
Jones said the new restaurant, tentatively named Verte, will be in West Hollywood and will feature a plant-based menu. It is expected to open in early April.
“It’s important to me for the community to know where I am going and what I am doing,” he said. “It’s very exciting.”
