Eater Chicago breaks the news that Andrew Brochu (formerly of Alinea, Pops for Champagne, Kith & Kin and most recently EL) will take over the reigns at graham elliot Feb. 1 as the restaurant moves to a tasting menu-only format:
"'(Brochu is) someone I've watched over the years and I’ve enjoyed his food at Pops and Kith & Kin. When we first spoke we hit it off right away and had a good connection,' (Graham) Elliot said. 'He's the only guy in Chicago that could raise the level of the restaurant to where we want it to be, which is striving to four stars. It's the first time since the opening of the restaurant that we went outside the restaurant and he’s the only guy in Chicago that can do this job.'"
We cannot wait to see what happens next!
