Chef Shuffles: Eric Hara Likeliest Candidate for Oak Room

Midtown: Says Gastrodamus:

"...the spirits are telling me to connect two pieces of news — the departure of Eric Hara from longstanding mentor David Burke, and the ejection of Joel Antunes from The Oak Room — and make an educated guess, based on divinations passed along by a kindred spirit living at the Plaza Hotel, that Hara will be the new chef at the Oak Room."
We're going to go with Gatrodamus on this one. While we've recently heard the Oak Room was considering Top Chef alum Hung Huynh, today an inside source tells us that Eric Hara is the chosen candidate. Funny that Platt just did a twofer on Hara's former and future employers.
