Clint Rogers Returns To The Gage, Henri

Well, that was quick.
Talented mixologist Clint Rogers is already out at Hot Chocolate only after leaving the top post at The Gage/Henri in early June.
"It just wasn't a good fit," he told 312DD Thursday about his less than two-month stint at the Bucktown powerhouse. He returned to The Gage and Henri about a week ago.
Eater Chicago broke the story that he was heading to Hot Chocolate to "push the boundaries and make it a popular destination for dinner, but push it into an after-hours bar with a smaller food menu."
It'll be interesting to see what happens now that he's back at The Gage and Henri. Bartender Thomas Mooneyham was promoted in his absence . . .
