Jody Denton Redux

Just learned that chef Jody Denton, formerly of Bend favorites Merenda and Deep, has reemerged in California after a short spell in Sydney, Australia.

Denton landed in Santa Monica, where news reports named him executive chef and co-partner in a small operation called the Blue Plate Oysterette. However, I just got a note from restaurant owner Jennifer Rush Morton, who said: “Jody consulted for BP Oysterette for several months and helped us with opening operations, but he is no longer at BP Oysterette and is not executive chef or co-partner.”

So the chef is again a free agent. Don’t hold your breath waiting for him to return to Bend.

    Hell, his real name isn’t even Jody Denton. You fail to mention the slew of unpaid bills and the wake of shit that he left behind in Bend.

      His real name, of course, is Jett O. Denton, but he’s always been called Jody. There’s no reason for me to go into his recent financial history, as that has already been thoroughly reported.

    Jody consulted for BP Oysterette for several months and helped us with opening operations, but he is no longer at BP Oysterette and is not executive chef or co-partner. Please update your blog accordingly.
