Chef Andrew Bell Resigns from Bolsa, Heads to Bistro 31

Chef Andrew Bell has had a varied career in the restaurant business. In 1999 he was a sushi chef at Citizen and the Mercury. He moved to Austin and worked as a sous chef at Uchi. Avner Samuel lured Bell to be his chef de cuisine at Aurora, a job he held for two years. (I still miss that place.) In 2008, Bell opened his own barbecue joint in downtown Dallas called Dr. Bell’s. In 2010, he reconnected with Samuel, this time in the kitchen of Nosh Euro Bistro. In 2012, he joined the team at Bolsa. Today he announced he is leaving Bolsa to head up the kitchen at Bistro 31.
