Alexis Chong is the new chef de cuisine at Ned Elliott’s Foreign & Domestic. She previously served as the executive chef at Sway in South Austin, before leaving this spring. Earlier this year Chong was one of 100 nominees for Food & Wine’s People’s Choice Best New Chef.

Elliott, who praised the talented Chong as a great leader and teacher, said his North Loop restaurant will be moving toward a more French point of view in the coming months. Diners can expect the return of several F&D classics like venison heart tartare and crispy beef tongue, two dishes that helped put the restaurant on the map.
