What Is Going On Over At Graham Elliot's?!
Just last month, Phil Vettel awarded Graham Elliot three stars in a Chicago Tribune review, so what's up with the turmoil behind the scenes?!
An Ultimate Insider tells 312DD that on Sunday afternoon some pretty intense disagreements between front of house and back of house had a few staffers walking out before service. They were so heated, in fact, that top management was called in to get matters back under control.
The River North restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so hopefully everyone will have a chance to cool off before it reopens Wednesday . . .
UPDATE: The restaurant placed an ad on Craigslist early Monday for lines cooks/chef de parties.
SECOND UPDATE: Executive Chef Andrew Brochu is no longer at the restaurant.
