Four-year-old Luxe Kitchen & Lounge (6605 Detroit Ave., 216-920-0600) has new leadership in the kitchen. Chef Brian Okin has been hired as executive chef. Founder of Dinner in the Dark, he most recently he worked at Fountain and his own eatery Verve.

Okin, who started this week, says that he and owner Melissa Cole have been in talks to "take Luxe to the next level."

"Luxe has a cool vibe and lots of potential," the chef says. "We just need to solidify the menu based on the original concept. I think Luxe can be something special in Cleveland."

That original concept, he adds, is a fun and funky Italian-Mediterranean bistro. Okin says that diners can expect a pretty drastic menu change within next couple weeks.
