Patrick Connolly, the chef for the last three years at West Village restaurant Bobo, has parted ways with the restaurant. Eater tipsters hear that the decision was a mutual one between Connolly and Bobo owner Carlos Suarez, and Suarez concurs, stating in an email, "It's been an amazing three years working together and we felt that it was just time for us each to move on. We're very excited about what we have planned here at BOBO and I'm excited to see Pat go on to do great things."
Connolly came on to the restaurant as its third chef in its first year in business and earned it a onespot from Frank Bruni. It's unclear at this point where Connolly is headed and who will take over the kitchen at both the Bobo townhouse and the forthcoming restaurant in the old Village Paper space.
