Though he has charmed kitchens across America with
his culinary workings, Allen has been back in Boston for five years
now, and has recently opened his own restaurant: Le Soir.
Mark has traveled far and wide as a chef, from Little Dix Bay in
Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands, to Arizona where he worked
under Chef Alessandro Strata's Mobile 5 star restaurant at The Phoenician
Resort, and to The Opera in San Francisco. In 1997 Mark took the
opportunity to return to his hometown, where was appointed chef
of The Dining Room at The Ritz-Carlton. There, he was responsible
for the culinary development, execution, presentation and menu preparation
for the restaurant. Mark was the youngest and only American chef
to head the award-winning Dining Room.
Mark, proven tireless after his tenure at The Ritz-Carlton, has
opted to leave the Hotel Dining scene and has opened his own bistro
Le Soir. Mark offers a menu of "Contemporary French Cuisine,
with Neighborhood Appeal."
