I spotted chef Josh Black a few nights ago while he was sipping a tall cocktail at his old stomping grounds, The People’s Last Stand. There has been a few pop-up dinners recently that Josh produced, but he hasn’t been in a steady kitchen since he left FT33. You know Josh from such restaurants as Stephan Pyles, CampO, and he even helped open Cedars Social with John Tesar. Yea, you probably forgot that Tesar opened Cedars just before he did the whole Commissary gig.
Here are a few things we discussed: Continue reading
You know chef Josh Black. He has worked the kitchen at Stephan Pyles, was the execuchef at Campo and more recently headed up kitchen duties at People’s Last Stand. I saw Black at an event recently where he told me he has taken time to be with his family for a bit, but we seem to see the nose-to-tail chef out doing more pop-ups and charity events than ever before. Today he sends word that he is doing a beer brunc, and this looks like some fun you will not want to miss. Continue reading

We have been following Josh Black since he was at Stephan Pyles, and eventually landing the executive chef position at CampO. Recently Black made off and scored the lead kitchen duties at the People’s Last Stand located in Mockingbird Station. At first this seemed like an odd choice for someone trained as well as Black, but upon further inspection it made glaring sense.
The down side for a chef at People’s Last Stand is that there really isn’t a kitchen. The space was built for a cocktail wonderland, and certainly the staff has excelled greatly in that department. A recent visit had me sitting on the edge of my seat as general manager and lead bartender Omar Yeefoon, formerly of Cedars Social, was perfecting a made-from-scratch tonic. He had several vials sitting out and was conferring with his staff to see which they might be serving that evening. They were all good, of course. Continue reading
