Herringbone Splits With Chef Amanda Baumgarten

New, 2 comments

A tipster whispered in our ear that Amanda Baumgarten is out of the kitchen at Herringbone and a restaurant rep confirmed that the Enlightened Hospitality Group and the chef have parted ways, though they "remain thankful for the devotion and passion she has invested in Herringbone."

Baumgarten, a contestant on season 7 of Top Chef, relocated from Los Angeles to take the lead Herringbone when the La Jolla restaurant opened last May. She previously cooked at LA's Water Grill.

EHGRP doesn't have a replacement chef lined up yet, and their rep said that Brian Malarkey himself, who just returned from opening Seasucker in Austin, will be getting back into the trenches to helm the kitchen in the interim.
