A chef who speaks with the highest authority just emailed to voice his chagrin at the choice of Five-Sixty for Wolfgang Puck's soon to open venue atop Reunion Tower.
At least a decade or so ago, Puck's staff weren't so trend-conscious (or wooden) when it came to naming rights. The emailing chef claims that when Puck and his then wife were considering a cute name for their baby (if it turned out to be a girl), his sous chef Sal Petrolino quipped "How about Wanna?"
No comment on this end. But says our corresponding chef "there's your creativity, sir."
