It must have been a heck of a honeymoon.
Grant Morgan, who'd planned to return to his executive chef post at Dragonfly when his honeymoon ended on Sept. 14, has announced his departure from the Hotel ZaZa dining room. His resignation is officially effective next Saturday.
According to a press release, Morgan is leaving to start a restaurant of his own.
The hotel is now seeking a new head chef, although spokesperson Laura Kirwan told me earlier this month that Chas Martin had been brought on board in Morgan's matrimonial absence to oversee all restaurant operations.
