Ste. Marie's Chef Ngoc Nguyen, 33, Passes Away

Ngoc Nguyen, Ste. Marie's beloved and shy executive chef went into cardiac arrest on Friday, January 11, and passed away, reports the Times-Pic's Todd A. Price. According to Robert LeBlanc, owner of the CBD restaurant and cocktail lounge, Chef Nguyen "worked tirelessly for over a year to bring about the positive changes we have experienced at Ste. Marie in the last two months and, unfortunately, he will not be here to enjoy the fruit of that labor." Nguyen began as a line cook at Ste. Marie, before working his way up the line to sous chef and eventually head of the kitchen.
