Following the departure of Lee Hanson and Riad Nasr, Sir Keith McNally has tapped Baltahzar's Shane McBride to oversee the menu at Schiller's. His name is now listed at the bottom of the menu as chef de cuisine. Mr. McBride tweeted about menu changes today, but there's no need to worry — the garlic shrimp and steak frites are still on there. McBride joined Hanson and Nasr as chef de cuisine at Balthazar back in 2011.
Lee and Riad's names are still on the Minetta Tavern menu right above chef de cuisine William Brasile, and the Pastis menu now lists Pascal Le Seac'h as executive chef (he was formerly the chef de cuisine). So, it looks like McNally just promoted from within his ranks and gave McBride the opportunity to manage both Schiller's and Balth.
