Meal Ticket is reporting that the highly regarded Michael Santoro is out as chef at Talula’s Garden. Santoro came to Aimee Olexy’s urban garden restaurant after stints at Washington D.C.’s Blue Duck Tavern, Fat Duck in England and Mugaritz in Spain.
Santoro told Meal Ticket he left “due to differences in menu development.”
This isn’t the only kitchen machination in the Talula’s universe. Chris D’Ambro who was a sous chef at Talula’s Garden from the opening is now the Executive Chef at Talula’s Table, taking over for Chef Matt Moon, Talula’s Table’s chef since Bryan Sikora left.
