So, theres still no word on where George Sabatino will land next. The promising culinary star hung up his apron at Stateside earlier this week, which immediately gave way to a barrage of back-fence talk that he was going to join Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran for their forthcoming restaurants at the former home of Fish and Rhino Bar. Theyve since put the kibosh on that chatter, denying any such involvement with him on those projects. While his next step remains wrapped in mystery, we do know one place where he will turn up next.
Sabatino is headed to Circles Thais NoLibs locale, but for only one night. He and Corner/Corner Foodery chef John Chainsaw Taus will man the pots and pans with Circles chef-owner Alex Boonphaya for a special six-course dinner on Thursday, March 28. Its part of a lager series of guest chef gigs the restaurants doing over the next couple weeks to celebrate the Thai New Year. Later, in mid-April Boonphaya will serve an eight-course prix fixe for three nights that will include dishes from each chefs guest dinner. The guest chef dinners will run $50 per person. The three greatest hits dinners will go for $60 per person. Chefs and the dates theyre cooking are pasted below.
Thursday, March 21 - Chef Jeffrey Power of Dettera
Thursday, March 28 - Chef John Chainsaw Taus of The Corner and The Corner Foodery along with Chef George Sabatino
Thursday, April 4 - Chef Jen Choplin of SoWe
Thursday, April 11 - Chef Sean Magee of Time
