Yes, Who Is Jose Garces?

Garces ChifaWe know we just posted a link to Philadelphia Magazine’s article about Jose Garces but now we’ve sat down and actually had a chance to read Lauren McCutcheon’s profile of the prolific chef.

Among the Fooboozian highlights:

  • Rumor has it Garces missed the James Beard Awards perhaps becuase he’s working on a Food Network gig.
  • July is still the targeted opening for Village Whiskey.
  • Garces Trading Co. is the name for the food/wine commisary (PLCB partnership) coming this fall to the Western Union building on Locust.
  • The Fontainebleau Las Vegas is getting a rooftop Amada, twice the size of the original.
  • Dave Conn will be chef de cuisine at Village Whiskey.

Check it all out.
