Zavala Joins Farmers’ Cabinet Team, Hosts Hens Revenge Tonight

One-time Top Chef contestant Jennifer Zavala has joined the culinary team at the Grainery Restaurant Group (Farmers’ Cabinet, The Boilermaker). She will be collaborating with Executive Chef Chris Allen. Zavala has most recently been at Interstate Drafthouse in Fishtown and previously had stints at El Camino Real and Xochitl, spots with a decidedly Latin influence on the menu. This is the latest change for the Farmers’ Cabinet/Boilermaker team that has recently gone modernist in the cocktails and witnessed several staff defections.

Tonight Zavala is hosting Hens Revenge, a female focused industry night at Prohibition Taproom.

    Oh no! Sounds like it’s time for an intervention with Jennifer.

    She will kick the butt of both those little weasel Matt owners on her inevitable way out the door

    Ugh. Good luck Chris. Hope you had a back up plan going in…if you do now would be the time to execute it.

  • Eric

    Seems like a strange fit. The food she is known for doesn’t have much in common with with the farmers cabinet concept. Hope it works out.

    She doesn’t know it yet – but it’s just an internship!
