New in Chefs Today, Part II

posted by on October 23 at 17:13 PM

Canlis got a new chef—Jason Franey, the executive sous chef from Eleven Madison Park in New York (Frank Bruni loves on that place here)—and held a press conference, with a live webcast, about it this morning. (Slog commenters were underwhelmed.)

The Virginia Inn got a new chef—Josh Green, the executive chef from Ponti—and merely emailed about it. The last time I ate at Ponti, it was not very good; however, Ponti’s lounge menu, which is more like what the V.I. serves, has always been fine. And the last time I ate at the V.I., it was pretty terrible.

This ought to work out well on both counts.
