- Eans is in at the American.
While the American (200 East 25th Street) searches for the next head of its kitchen, Josh Eans will be serving as the interim executive chef. Eans took over the reins this weekend from chef Debbie Gold, who left the Crown Center eatery for another opportunity with a locally based restaurant group that hasn't yet been named.
"I'm sad to see [Debbie] go, but I'm excited to take over and do some cool things here," Eans said. "It's an honor to have this position."
Eans was most recently the executive chef for Blanc Burgers + Bottles. He began working at the American as a sous chef in November 2011.
