BLT Steak Chef Shuffle; Slurping Turtle Strolling to Town

SOUTH BEACH - BLT Steak's Mario Tolentino is moving on after six months of service on South Beach. The new chef in charge is an import from NYC, Matthew Oetting, and he has quite the resume. Oetting has spent time in some of heavyweight kitchens: Scott Conant's Scarpetta, Jonathan Waxman's Barbuto and Danny Meyer's Union Square Cafe. [ShortOrder]

TBD - More imports are coming to Miami, this time from the Midwest, with the rumor that Slurping Turtle is shopping real estate around town, specifically looking at Brickell, South Beach, or Miracle Mile. Chicago's Takashai Yagihashi is looking to recreate his Japanese youth at his Miami outpost, "where with all the different noodle and ramen dishes, it will almost be wrong if you don't slurp".
