Le Cirque Update

New, 2 comments

2008_10_lecirqueshuffle.jpgRemember when we heard the rumor the now ex-Le Cirque chef was outed do to an "employee related incident"? Well Gael Greene offers a little more: "Did he leave or was he pushed? Sirio Maccioni says he learned Bellanca was flirting with a backer for his own place and, already unhappy with the chef’s style of running the kitchen, let him go last Saturday...'We’ll be fine... Everytime we make a change, we just get better.'" We should note here that Maccioni's son Marco has told us his father believes a chef should typically move on every five years (Bellanca was there two). [Insatiable Critic; previously]
