Bruno Davillion, top toque at miX, has left the building to head the kitchen at The Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. Davillion becomes the second Las Vegas chef to take this position, previously held by John Tesar (who preceded Adam Sobel as RM’s executive sous chef under Rick Moonen).
Michael Mina pastry chef and James Beard Award nominee Sarah Kosikowski will soon depart our humble burg for the more foodie-centric environs of Chicago, Illinois (as opposed to Chicago, Delaware), where she will head up the pastry team at the Trump Hotel there.
ELV fears this slow and steady exodus of world-class talent from our better kitchens, may have a corrosive effect on our overall dining scene, as corporate bigwigs (and bean counters) figure to cut corners, and hope the dining out public doesn’t notice.
Eating Las Vegas will notice.
