UPDATE, August 8, 9 a.m.: Boston Urban Hospitality is opening a new concept at 52 Temple Place (formerly Mantra), in Downtown Crossing, Boston Restaurant Talk reports. Boston has reached out to co-owner Chris Coombs for more details on their plans.


Deuxave has some new leadership, and co-owners Brian Piccini and Chris Coombs are making moves to open new spots around town, Boston Urban Hospitality just announced. Stefanie Bui, formerly sous chef at the Back Bay restaurant, takes over as chef de cuisine for Adrienne Wright, who was promoted to executive chef of the restaurant group.

BUH also includes Boston Chops and dbar, and Piccini and Coombs are currently researching ideas and looking for new spaces to expand their business, Boston Restaurant Talk first reported.

Wright has been a kitchen leader at Deuxave for several years. Before joining Boston Urban Hospitality, she worked at Radius and with the Barbara Lynch Gruppo, establishments where Bui also developed her skills. Before her career at Deuxave, Bui was at Radius and No. 9 Park, where she learned from chefs John DaSilva and Patrick Campbell. She is a recent Zagat 30 Under 30 honoree.

“I have been lucky to have been granted a lot of creative freedom in my most recent role at Deuxave, in addition to my experience working under other chefs of various backgrounds and visions,” Wright said in a press release. “I look forward to helping to continue to develop the culinary talent in all three current restaurants and work closely with chef Coombs to identify new concepts and locations to grow the Boston Urban Hospitality brand.”
