More Chef-Related Drama (Blind Item!) . . .


This week has had more drama than an entire season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. This missive dropped in the 312DD inbox about a chef who never got paid for his/her services at a very popular Chicago restaurant:

"I want to let you know that [Chef A] left [Restaurant] because he/she wasn't paid for his/her time there. Unlike [Chef B], this chef was not a partner who was paid (or supposed to be) by profits; Instead, he/she was promised a bi-monthly salary that was never met. He/she chose to leave because he did not pay him/her or show any promise of paying him/her. [Owner] has owed [Chef A] a large amount of money for over 5 months. He also owes several purveyors, many cooks, and most of the FOH staff money.

I think people should be aware of what is really going on at [Restaurant], however, please keep me anonymous."
