GASLAMP— We were alerted to a chef shuffle that just went down at Blush Ice Bar + East-West Kitchen; last night, executive chef Daniel Barron announced on his Facebook page that he had left the restaurant, which opened this summer; there's no word yet on where Barron is headed. Chef de cuisine Ami Cisneros (The Hopping Pig), who replaced Stephen Gage when Gage moved to UnderBelly in September, is reportedly still in the kitchen. [EaterWire]
