Chef Laurent Tourondel Leaving BLT Group

by Mark

One of my favorite chef mentors and colleagues is leaving his namesake restaurant group.  Mentor and cherished colleague Laurent Tourondel is leaving the restaurant group he founded. Will they be able to keep up the quality and fiscal success?

In an LA Times article, Tourondel states ” This has been a great run for me…I am looking forward to staying involved in a handful of BLT restaurants while pursuing other culinary projects and new opportunities.”

If you haven’t added his cookbook to your collection, you should!

But in Federal District Court in Manhattan, Mr. Haber’s lawyers accused Mr. Tourondel of sending an e-mail calling one of Mr. Haber’s partners not only a “stupid guy” but also an “idiot,” and the chef claims in court papers that Mr. Haber owes him $250,000 in consultant fees for the BLT Steak in Waikiki, Hawaii.
