After 12 years with CookNSolo, Erin O’Shea — opening chef at Percy Street BBQ and, more recently, Rooster Soup Company — has left Steve Cook and Mike Solomonov’s restaurant empire to “pursue other interests”, according to the group’s rep.
Co-founder Steve Cook on O’Shea’s departure:
“Mike and I worked with Erin for twelve years and we are very sad to see her go. She’s done tremendous things for our company. We’ve grown together, and through her talent, dedication and a ton of heart, she set us up for success and dreaming big at Rooster. We will miss her but her presence will be felt in the standards of warmth and hospitality that she brought to work every day.”
Oh, and remember the Yemenite Chicken Pot Pie? You know, the one they took off the menu after GQ and F&W sang its praises? It’s back on the menu as a Dinner Blue Plate special.
