Ex-Stateside Chef George Sabatino Headed to Morgan’s Pier This Spring

George Sabatino

So those rumors of former Stateside chef George Sabatino heading kitchen operations at Marcie Turney and Valarie Safran’s forthcoming projects at the former site of Fish and its dumbed-down offshoot Rhino Bar, proved unfounded. And that gig at Circles we mentioned yesterday, is just a one-night-stand. But at long last, word comes today that the up-and-coming chef has landed a permanent job. He’s taking over at Avram Hornik’s seasonal, riverfront hot-spot, Morgan’s Pier. According to the Insider, Sabatino’s menus will debut there when it reopens on May 7 with a newly reconfigured dining area. [Insider; Earlier]
