Tourondel OUT at BLT Steak in NY, LA and DC, But Still IN at BLT Steak Miami

New, 1 comment

Flo Fab reports that super chef Laurent Tourondel and his partner in the BLT empire Jimmy Haber, have split right on the verge of the partnership's sixth year anniversary. According to the article, the split was amicable—LT wants to open some places on his own—but it looks like Haber is getting most of the spoils. He will retain ownership over BLT Fish, BLT Prime and BLT Burger in New York as well as BLT Steak in New York, LA, and DC. Tourondel, who will continue to oversee kitchen operations for all management license properties including 10 restaurants such as BLT Steak Miami, also has the rights to the BLT name (duh), and BLT Market. "We thank Laurent for his brilliance, dedication, hard work and creativity over the last six years and only wish him continued success in all his future endeavors," Haber said in a statement.[ENY]
