Sadly, Ms. Sue Torres of the excellent, dearly departed Sueños, is not planning another New York restaurant at this time. But earlier this week, the chef opened a new restaurant with her husband Darren Carbone in Westport, Connecticut. Tierra has a pan-Latin menu that includes things like barbecued beef tacos, tuna ceviche, hanger steak with Peruvian potato salad, chilaquiles, and empanadas. The website notes: "We resource local produce and products from Connecticut's own tierra which enables us to bring you the freshest and most flavorful Latin cuisine."
In other chef shuffle news, Tadashi Ono, formerly of La Caravelle and Masion O, is teaming up with Harris Salat, the restaurateur behind Ganso. Mr. Ono will work as a partner and culinary director for Ganso and its forthcoming spinoffs. Flo Fab reports that Ono and Salat are currently working on Ganso Yaki, a new izakya at 515 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, as well as a third project, which remains a mystery. Ganso Yaki is slated to open this fall. Ono and Salat recently published a book about comfort food together.
UPDATE: That third Ganso restaurant will be a "Japanese fish shack."
