After three and a half  years at The Setai in Miami Beach where he raised the bar for fine dining and brought a new dimension to food in Miami , Executive Chef Jonathan Wright has accepted an appointment  at the famous Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados.  His last day at the Setai is September 3.  “ It was a hard decision, I thought long and hard about it, but it was one of those opportunities that don’t come along very often,” explained Chef Wright.  “It is a wonderful property and I am very excited about the opportunity to bring the Culinary program up to a world class experience.”

Regarding a replacement, he said: “They’re doing a worldwide search for a new Executive chef. But, I’ve put together a very strong crew and they’ll do a great job until the Setai finds one.”
