In an effort to remain relevant following the departure of Top Cheffer and chef de cuisine Chris Crary last November, Whist at the Viceroy in Santa Monica is now CAST restaurant, still under command of executive chef Tony DiSalvo.

As for aesthetics, it doesn't sound like too much has changed, more like a furniture shuffle and some fresh wallpaper. Although an added sliding wall is in place that portions off part of the main dining room into a private eating space. There's also communal dining tables now, too. [EaterWire]
