The Scoop: Chef Carl Hazel leaves The Scottish Arms

January 29th 03:01pm, 2016




Executive chef Carl Hazel fired his final ticket at The Scottish Arms on Wednesday, Jan. 27. He worked at the Central West End restaurant since 2007, having left in 2012 and returned again in 2013. Hazel said he was grateful for his years at the Scottish pub, but it was time for a change. “It was time for me to explore something different,” he said. “This past year, we have had significant growth and had things dialed in. It’s time for me to find something else to put my effort into.”

Hazel said he appreciated the opportunity to be creative in the kitchen. “I was fortunate to have some of the best eaters in the city,” he said. “They were adventurous and willing to try anything I was willing to prepare for them. It allowed me to grow as a chef. I am grateful to (owner) Ally (Nisbet) and the guests.”

Hazel is still working on his future plans and is considering a return to a consulting work, which he had previously done with restaurants outside of St. Louis, including a bed and breakfast in the Farmington area.

In Hazel’s absence, Nisbet said the team at The Scottish Arms is strong and will step up and work together until Hazel’s replacement is named. “(Carl and I) have been together a long time,” Nisbet said. “I have nothing but respect for him. He’s incredible, and I know Carl will go on to do great things.”
