This just in: Adam Sobel and Gerald Chin — two of our favorite dudes in food — have left the kitchens at RM Seafood and RM Upstairs in Mandalay Bay. Chin has taken a position as a chef at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, and Sobel’s plans are, as of today, unannounced.
As this represents a step forward for both of them in their careers, ELV is happy for both.
As this causes us to wonder who or what will happen to the phenomenal cooking/creativity both brought to RM, we are sad. But since Rick “Mr. Fishes” Moonen is renowned for the talent he brings into his kitchen (e.g. John Tesar et al), wethinks the ship will remain on a steady course.
It better, ‘cuz we at ELV are already overwhelmed with the prospects of updating our book…that isn’t even a week old!
