John Mims Out

According to Philadelphia Magazine, John Mims, chef and owner of Carmine’s in Bryn Mawr and of Les Bons Temps in Center City is out at both places.

Philadelphia attorney Howard Taylor, confirmed the split, saying, “He’s not with us anymore, but otherwise, the staff remains intact.”

Reached this morning on his cell phone, Mims declined to get into specifics, as did Taylor, but made it pretty clear that things aren’t exactly civil: “The lawyers are involved. It’s going to be a really ugly divorce.”

And if you believe our commenter, Mims hasn’t been in the kitchen much at Les Bons Temps.
