Over the weekend Coral Gables wine bar Uvaggio and its executive chef Bret Pelaggi parted ways. The Miami-native and Top Chef New Orleans contestant Pelaggi has been leading the kitchen since the space opened a little over a year ago.
As for who is going to replace Pelaggi at Uvaggio, 'Head Wine-O' Heath Porter tells Eater that for now they are looking to hire internally saying, "the menu will slowly change here and there but we've got some solid cats who were under him that we want to give a chance."
No word yet on what Pelaggi's next move is or if he'll be staying in Miami. Stay tuned for more updates.
