Area restaurants and chefs are mourning the loss of Paoli resident Patrick Feury, the 57-year-old culinary brain of Nectar in Berwyn, writes Ed Williams for Main line today.
The chief executive, who died suddenly from a fall on February 12, was recently remembered at a memorial service at St. Norbert Catholic Church in Paoli.
“In my more than 25 years representing chefs and restaurateurs, no one I’ve ever worked with compared to Patrick Feury,” said Peter Breslow, a PR operative along the mainline. “He was always so full of life, passion and happiness. He was one of a kind – and a soul I will always think of while eating dumplings, hunting, fishing or discovering new foods.
Feury championed local farmers and vendors, primarily those in Chester County.
“Patrick was a longtime friend and supporter of our family farm,” said Sue Miller of Birchrun Hills Farm.
Nectar, which is often hailed as the main line’s answer to Center City’s Buddakan, is defined by its delicious Asian-inspired cuisine and lavish interior. The restaurant is committed to continuing the Feury legacy “under the leadership of chef/partner Kenny Huang.”
