Former sous chef of the ravaged River Cafe lands a golden culinary-career opportunity in the wake of the storm's destruction. Despite having decimated homes and businesses throughout the Northeast and, in particular, areas in and surrounding the stoic city of New York, Hurricane Sandy has destroyed neither hope nor opportunity. And that's exactly what one talented chef -- Philliberto Jimenez - has found. After losing his job at Brooklyn's prestigious River Cafe, he recently landed a golden opportunity as head chef at Blue Planet Grill. Blue Planet Grill, or "BPG," sits in the heart of New York's financial district, across the street from the 9/11 memorial. Just one year old, the restaurant has received rave reviews for its global fusion fare and liquid art cocktails designed by the city's renowned Artemio Vasquez, formerly of Pegu and PDT fame. While the restaurant has become a definite hotspot for tourists, it's been gaining traction with die-hard locals and gastronomical gurus too.
