Say It Ain’t So Matyson

Today Food and Drinq tells us Matyson’s chef and co-owner Matt Spector and his wife are leaving Philadelphia for California’s wine country.

The restaurant, he [Matt Spector] says, will be left in capable hands: Ben Puchowitz, Matt’s cousin and an employee since Day One, and Brian Losink, their sous chef. Puchowitz’s father, Butch, now owns the place. “This is a good opportunity for those guys to keep it going and put their own flair on it,” Matt Spector says.

Here’s hoping that Matyson’s transition goes as smoothly as when Marigold Kitchen changed chefs.

Oh and this week the tasting menu at Matyson is “Perfectly Porky.” Menu after the jump.
