Kenny Gilbert No Longer With 50 Eggs and Swine Southern Table & Bar

Categories: Restaurant News

Short Order has just received word that chef Kenny Gilbert has departed from 50 Eggs.

"50 eggs has chosen to part ways with chef Kenny Gilbert," they said in a statement to us. "We wish him well in his next endeavor."

Gilbert has been with 50 Eggs as a managerial concept organizer of sorts for the cooperation. He was set to act as an advisor for the barbecue concept of the Swine project. Yardbird's pork-centric sister restaurant, Swine Southern Table & Bar, is slated to open in Coral Gables before the year's end.

His departure will not change the much-anticipated restaurant's opening date.

A rep for 50 Eggs told us that a new chef has already been hired to replace Gilbert's responsibilities, but further details on him could not be given at this time.

When we asked whether Gilbert left voluntarily or not, the rep declined to comment.

Gilbert was scheduled to take part in New Times' Iron Fork event and organizers are currently trying to figure out how they will handle the change.

Stay tuned for news on who takes Gilbert's place at Swine (and potentially at Iron Fork).
