Akhtar Nawab, currently the chef at E.U., is leaving to open a place of his own. Cutlets: “We’re planning something, and we are looking at a space,” Nawab told us. The new restaurant, which Nawab will open with Dani operating partner Noel Cruz, will be on West 8th Street. The menu will reflect casual but sophisticated Mediterranean food “something like the original Craftbar,” Nawab explained. Update: Cutlets is now reporting (via the same link) that Nawab is not leaving. We take this to mean that he is, but probably jumped the gun on going public with the intel. Developing. [Cutlets]
