THE GREEK Opens in One Arts Plaza with a New Chef, New Tricks

After a rocky start that included a dramatic chef shuffle and an opening date scoot, things are up and moving at Ziziki's-owned THE GREEK in One Arts Plaza. Just this past weekend, there was a shakeup: Chef Richard Silva made an abrupt exit. Chef Taylor Kearney (of Boulevardier and Charlie Palmer fame) took his place, just hours before opening day. That mess has been sorted.

I popped in during the soft opening to take it all in, along with some eager Arts District-area workers. The new official open date is this Friday, October 19.
