♦ db Bistro Moderne has been going through chefs like I go through a can of Pringles so it’s with a measure of irony that they welcome chef Jason Pringle as their new executive chef. Pringle hails from sister-restaurant Cafe Boulud in NYC. Here’s hoping that once he pops, he can’t stop. Okay, that’s an awful joke. Unsubscribe.
♦ Meanwhile, Eater.com reports that a Top Chef contestant I’ve never heard of is opening a restaurant in Miami. We have literally reached a point where cooking shows have run out of adult contestants (see Masterchef Junior, Top Chef Junior, Hells Kitchen 4 Kidz).
