Friends and foodies are mourning the death Sunday of Joseph Palmieri, 40, chef and owner of the Chelsea Grille in Montclair. Palmieri, who graduated from Bloomfield High School and the Culinary Institute of America, had also worked at New York City’s Hyatt Regency, Tavern on the Green, and West End Gate.
“No one will fill his shoes…” said one fan on the Bloomfield Forum. In an article in yesterday’s Star-Ledger, Palmieri’s father recounts his son’s career.
