Aaron Chambers

Not Your Average Joe’s has named Aaron Chambers vice president of culinary and executive chef, replacing Jeff Tenner, the company said last week.

Chambers spent nearly eight years at Daniel Boulud’s Dinex Group, most recently as executive chef of Bar Boulud in Boston.

He also has worked at Café Boulud and Boulud Sud in New York City, as well as Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxford, England; Café de Park in Washington, D.C.; and Al Mahara in Dubai.

In 2011, when he was executive chef of Boulud Sud, Chambers was named one of Zagat's “30 under 30” young and innovative chefs.

“We are honored to welcome Aaron to our leadership team,” Stephen Silverstein, founder and CEO of Not Your Average Joe's, said in a press release. “Not only is Aaron a great guy and a highly accomplished chef who has received countless acclamations from several award-winning kitchens, but his enthusiasm and passion for the food we serve is infectious. His commitment to education will add a fresh dimension to Not Your Average Joe’s, and the attractive culinary talent he possesses will certainly propel our creative, casual cuisine to a new level.”

Chambers said: “I am thrilled to be joining such a unique restaurant family that embraces the use of high quality, seasonal ingredients to create shareable dishes for all people to enjoy. I look forward to collaborating with the entire Not Your Average Joe’s team to make a memorable statement out of the food we serve our guests.”

Not Your Average Joe’s is based in Milton, Mass., and has 26 units.
