Local chefs are packing their knives and coming or going. At Sundy House in Delray, celeb exec chef Lindsay Autry has been joined by new pastry chef Sarah Sipe. Sipe has cooked in and around SoFla for the past 10 years, including stints with Autry at Michelle Bernstein’s Michy’s in Miami and the Omphoy Resort in Palm Beach.

Also on the move is Max’s Harvest chef Chris Miracolo, who’s moving on to become top toque at the restaurant in the Fort Lauderdale Beach Hilton. Max Group exec chef Patrick Broadhead will take over the reins. Also leaving is PGA National Resort chef Gordon Maybury, who’s signing on as to run the kitchen of the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix.

There’s a New Deal at Boston’s on the Beach (40 S. Ocean Blvd., 561/278-3364). It’s the recently instituted “Appy Hour” menu, a weekday roster of cheap bites and sips from 4 to 7 p.m. Look for peel ‘n’ eat shrimp, wings, crabcakes, steamers and more, priced from $4 to $8. Oh, and half-priced draft and domestic beers, wine and well drinks. Cheers.
