A familiar face from Boston’s culinary scene is coming back to town. Chef David Bazirgan is leaving San Francisco and returning here to work at Bambara in Cambridge. Before he went wes in 2003, the Newburyport native was chef de cuisine for Barbara Lynch at No. 9 Park in Boston. “Baz” is slated to become Bambara’s new executive chef in August, and plans to unveil his menu this fall.
“I am so pumped to get back to cooking in concert with New England’s seasons, being around the peers that I started my career with and having my family in New England,” Bazirgan said.
