A funny (sad?) story on the New Times’ Short Order blog: It appears that Il Grissino, a new restaurant in the Gables, sent out a press release announce their accomplished new chef from Milan, Simone Mua. And then 18 minutes later sent out a “revised” press release omitting any mention of the guy. We hardly knew you!
Reminds me of the final episode of Season 3 of Curb Your Enthusiasm when the chef quits right before the grand opening and they end up getting a new chef who, as the online episode guide puts it, has “a penchant for speaking his mind.”
Not a good way to start things off. I imagine it’s hard enough to open a new restaurant in this economy.
