The home of the onion soup burger has a new chef. Kyoo Eom, a five-year veteran of 2941, is taking the helm at Poste. The South Korean-born chef also cooked in New York City under Daniel Boulud and Andrew Carmellini at two of Boulud's restaurants.

Though you won't see any big menu changes as of now, Eom—who took over from chef Dennis Marron—plans to roll out a few preview dishes during summer Restaurant Week. The fall could bring menu items such as asparagus-wrapped halibut with pommes rösti and côte de boeuf for two.

Perhaps Michelle Obama will drop by for another meal under the new toque.
