"After Bobo Executive Chef Jared Stafford-Hill was fired yesterday, he stormed back into the kitchen and poured Ajax in all of the sauces (obviously trashed immediately) and cut the wires to all the service computers before leaving. Good luck getting a job in this town again!" [via Eater]
Last summer at this time, I remember walking into the space in the West Village that is now Bobo and watching Carlos Suarez slaving away, himself making sure his new restaurant would be up to standard to the elistist New Yorkers that would come to dine there. Though I haven't been in awhile, I will always be a fan of the place and its Bourgeois Bohemian skeleton. However, Carlos just can't seem to catch a break with his chefs:
Today, Bobo reps have confirmed that chef Jared Stafford-Hill was fired from the restaurant this week, just seven months after opening chef Nicolas Cantrel left due to "mutual differences". Looks like owner Carlos Suarez could have some management issues on his hand [Eater]
I am confident that Carlos will get this worked out soon enough and I'll be back this September to a new and better Bobo. Maybe this time Richie Rich will come with me!
