Metromix gives some serious ink web time to Josef Centeno, former Lot 1 chef, this week. There's a lot about who he is, what he's done, what he wants to do, but then there's this: " Centeno is also dealing with a lawsuit, filed the day after his last dinner service at Lot 1. According to court documents, the complaint alleges breach of oral contract and seeks compensatory damages of at least $400,000." And he's not saying much about it. He tells MM: “It’s not ever easy leaving something you have put your whole heart and soul into. But there were just too many factors that made it impossible to stay.” Centeno still wants to open his own place called Volver, but not for awhile. [Metromix; previously]
