New Chef at Plein Sud

Plein Sud hopes to step it up.

Sebastien Agez is taking over from Top Chef's Ed Cotton at Plein Sud. The restaurant at the Smyth Hotel hasn't been open too long, yet the change has been a long time coming. Agez is becoming a bit of a professional Top Chef replacer, being that he also once took over from Joe Paulino at Café des Artistes. Someone's gotta do it. [Eater NY]
