Moving Up: Eric Clark, general manager of operations at Deck 84 restaurant

Eric Clark is the new General
Manager of Operations at
the award-winning restaurant
 in Delray Beach, Deck 84.
Welcome Back, Eric!

A well-known name on the South Florida restaurant scene, Eric Clark was recently hired as the general manager of operations at Burt Rapoport's Deck 84 in Delray Beach, Fla. Being part of Rapoport's award-winning restaurants represents a homecoming for Clark, who worked with the veteran restaurateur 20 years ago at Max's Grille, Maxaluna and Prezzo.

His challenge at Deck 84, he said, is "to exceed guests' expectations and wow them on every visit." The waterfront restaurant at 840 E. Atlantic Ave. has about 100 employees, and he said it's important to create a family environment with them.

"I was 15 when I started in the restaurant business," he said. "Restaurants are my passion, my love and my destiny."
