Nilton “Junior” Borges, the executive chef of FT33, has resigned


Another notable Dallas chef is rolling up his knifes and heading out the door.

Nilton “Junior” Borges, the talented executive chef of FT33 since leaving Uchi Dallas in January, is about to become the former executive chef of FT33.  Borges confirmed to the Hatch that he’s decamping Matt McCallister’s Dallas Design District restaurant next week for the Joule Hotel downtown. Borges says he’s hired on as the Joule’s executive chef, overseeing all culinary operations. Borges is a good guy, and I have absolutely no reason to think the split is anything but amicable.

Expect a press release, oh, I’d bet in a few hours.
