New chef at helm of HotChocolate

Pastry queen Mindy Segal has surprisingly handed over the reigns to her award-winning HotChocolate restaurant to Mark Steuer, who's served as her chef de cuisine for three years.

While Segal's made her mark on the local and national dining scene as a sweets star, Steuer has always balanced her with a well-engineered savory menu. He's reportedly got a "mild obsession with all things pork," which should reflect in his new fall dishes, including local sweet potato gnocchi with braised Berkshire pork cheeks.

Now that's something to squeal about.
