OUR STORY

Developer Ira Fenton and former New York Giant Tucker Frederickson who were part of the team that developed The Bear’s Club and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club & Spa, Jupiter (now Trump National Golf Club, Jupiter), came up with the idea three years ago. Through their connections in South Florida, including landlord and partner, Bjarne Borg, they found other like-minded individuals who were interested in bringing something fresh and new to northern Palm Beach County.

Joining Fenton, Frederickson, and Borg as founding partners of 1000 NORTH are Ernie Els, Michael Jordan, Bill Terlato, Morton Bouchard, Vincent Cerone, Russell and Lauren Fuchs, Raj Mantena, Stephen Mendell, Patrick Park, Marvin Shanken, Rick Stoddard, Richard Rifkin, and Charles and Kathryn Theofilos. Since the original group came together, many professional athletes and celebrities have joined the partnership team.

“We wanted to give guests something they can’t find in our area – an experience many people travel to Miami or New York to get. We’re bringing that to Jupiter, and topping it off with a beautiful waterfront view of the Jupiter Lighthouse. Those coming to 1000 NORTH can even arrive by boat if they prefer. Our 350-foot dock will be open to guests,” Fenton said.

OUR TEAM

Luke Bjoin
LUKE BJOIN – Managing Director

Hiring Luke Bjoin as managing director significantly moved 1000 NORTH forward in its quest to become Palm Beach County’s leading fine dining destination.

Luke spent most of his career working with Robert De Niro, and Nobu Matsuhisa, the celebrated chef/proprietor of the Nobu group of restaurants. Matsuhisa gained fame with his unique brand of fusion cuisine, blending traditional Japanese ingredients with influences from Peru. Luke helped take the chef’s culinary vision from the kitchen to the dining room.

Like many hospitality professionals, he has led the life of a nomad. After working at Nobu in Las Vegas, catering to a clientele of celebrities and high rollers, he opened the award-winning Nobu in Hawaii. His next stop was Dubai, where as general manager he learned the art of meeting the needs of customers from a variety of cultures. From there, he came to Florida to oversee food and beverage operations at the Nobu Hotel, Miami Beach.

Despite his experience in upscale dining, Luke started from the bottom. He began his career as a busboy in a Chinese restaurant in his hometown of San Diego, and learned every aspect of the business as he worked his way up the ladder. Along the way, he realized the importance of making the experience unforgettable for every single guest. His motto is simple: “Great food plus unparalleled service equals happy guests.”

When he’s not innovating ways to provide the best service, Luke spends his free time golfing or creating new dishes to cook at home with his wife Angel.

Lee Morris
LEE MORRIS – Executive Chef

Although he has family ties to Florida, chef Lee Morris is deeply connected to the American South. He attended culinary school at Johnson & Wales in Charleston, S.C., and after graduation, worked for the Hall Management Group, the Lowcountry’s leading collection of fine dining restaurants. Working alongside famed Charleston chef, Frank Lee, formerly of Slightly North of Broad, Morris gained an appreciation for the area’s distinctive produce, seafood, and classic dishes.

After a stint as executive chef at Charleston Chops and corporate chef at Tbonz Gill and Grill, Morris moved on to the Hillstone Restaurant Group. Hillstone’s reliance on exceptional ingredients and consistent execution has won them praise for operations such as Napa’s Rutherford Grill, Newport Beach’s Gulfstream Seafood, and the Palm Beach Grill. From there, he joined Nashville’s exploding restaurant scene at the trendy BrickTop’s, and Music City’s branch of The Palm, one of America’s great steakhouses. After seven years in Tennessee, Morris moved back to Florida as executive chef of the BrickTop’s location in Palm Beach.

His extensive experience makes him uniquely qualified to lead the kitchen at 1000 NORTH, the most eagerly awaited restaurant and private club to come to Palm Beach County in decades. Morris puts a soulful spin on modern American cuisine, with a focus on the coastal influences of Florida, Louisiana, the Carolinas, and New England, relying on his seasonal and flavor-driven style.

When not manning the stoves at 1000 NORTH, Morris can be found cooking at home for his wife Page, 2-year-old daughter McKesson, and Luke, the family’s Boykin spaniel.

Jason Van Bomel
JASON VAN BOMEL – Chef de Cuisine

Chef Jason Van Bomel’s exemplary work and creative ideas have paid off. After nine months as sous chef at 1000 NORTH, management recognized Van Bomel’s talents and promoted him to Chef de Cuisine.

Van Bomel is by no means new to the culinary world. He brings nearly three decades of experience and a broad range of styles to the table. Van Bomel graduated from the Florida Culinary Institute, then mastered his techniques at luxury hotels in Sydney, Australia, London, and Palm Beach. His international experiences have fueled his passion for introducing guests to unique flavors from faraway places.

Having held a variety of culinary positions, Van Bomel understands that motivating his team, as well as elevating staff morale, inspires quality service, thereby creating a better experience for guests.

When he is not at 1000 NORTH, you can find Van Bomel in his garden cultivating tropical fruits, herbs, and orchids.
