Same faces, new roles

Big Rock Chophouse of Birmingham owners Norman and Bonnie LePage recently announced Eric Voigt would be taking over as executive chef and Bill Morales will be their new executive sous chef. Both chefs have worked at the restaurant – located at 245 S. Eton Street – for years. Voigt joined the staff at Big Rock Chophouse in 2011, when he began as their executive pastry chef, while Morales joined in 2015 as a line cook before quickly making his way up the ladder. Bonnie LePage said in the press release that they were happy to promote both chefs and are excited to see what they do going forward with the menu.
