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

Lee Morris
LEE MORRIS – General Manager and Culinary Director

Since 1000 NORTH’s conception, Chef Lee Morris has been responsible for the flavor-driven cuisine guests have come to crave. It did not take long for management to realize that Chef Morris was destined for an even greater role. Now, as culinary director and general manager, Morris not only develops creative coastal dishes, but also ensures that guests have the best possible experience every time they visit.

Morris’ passion for gastronomy began at a young age. At Johnson & Wales University’s Charleston, S.C., campus, he pursued degrees in the culinary arts, and food and beverage management. Morris’ stint in the South gave him an appreciation for modern, Low Country cuisine, and a desire to create sophisticated comfort food.

Morris’ undeniable talent has transported him to notable culinary outlets, including The Palm, Hillstone Restaurant Group, and the Hall Management Group, and led him to open the ultra-trendy BrickTop’s. Morris emerged from the kitchen as a leader due to his ability to implement ideas and positively influence his co-workers.

Today, when he’s not inspiring his staff to exceed guests’ expectations, Morris enjoys traveling and spending time with his wife Page, daughter McKesson, and Luke, the family’s Boykin spaniel.

Jason Van Bomel
JASON VAN BOMEL – Executive Chef

Chef Jason Van Bomel’s exemplary work and creative ideas paved the way to his executive chef position. He joined 1000 NORTH in 2017 as a sous chef. His talents were immediately recognized and Chef Van Bomel quickly climbed the ranks; first to chef de cuisine, and now, executive chef.

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 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 and elevating staff morale inspire quality service, therefore 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.
