Eater Chicago reports that avec's James Beard-award winning chef Koren Grieveson is out at the West Loop restaurant:
"Eater got a tip last night and just exclusively received a statement from One Off Hospitality (where Paul Kahan is partners with Donnie Madia, Terry Alexander and Eduard Seitan) confirming the news.
"The departure comes as a surprise as Grieveson has received numerous accolades for her work with the company. There's no word on what caused the split, why she has moved on or who will replace her as chef de cuisine at avec. As for what Grieveson will do next, that is uncertain as she was unavailable for comment at press time."
Here's the entire story.
UPDATE. An Ultimate Insider tells 312DD: "She is moving to NYC to get married."
She also tweeted:
"Thank you for all the support. I'm sad to be leaving avec. They are my family. Love you my Chicago family."
Congrats to Koren and her significant other!
