Antonio Bachour Ditches the W South Beach
|Put your dentist on speed dial -- Bachour's bringing it big time.|
Probably even more stunned is Andrew Carmellini, who is set to debut The Dutch this winter.
Bachour's responsibilities included the W South Beach's food and beverage program, along with desserts for Quattro Gastronomia Italiana and Sosta Pizzeria Enoteca, along with KNR's New York gigs with Trump SoHo.
When we sampled Bachour's delectable manchego cheesecake at the now defunct Solea back in June, he disclosed plans for an exciting new dessert-centric outlet scheduled to be unveiled shortly after the new concept's opening, but now it seems he is planning for a sweeter gig with an A-list chef.
Short Order got a tip-off as to where he'll be going but we were sworn to secrecy until mid-October. However we were given permission to share a swipe of icing: Bachour promises we'll be seeing much more of him 'round here than before.
