Park Avenue Winter Does Some Spring Cleaning, Lets Go of GM

After hearing a rumor that GM Santiago Pasentez was dismissed from Park Avenue Café after he was accused of discriminating against South Asian waiters, we called the restaurant and were told that indeed he no longer works there. Owner Mike Stillman clarifies, “It was sort of a mutual thing — not a firing in any sort of way.” A new GM has yet to be hired to oversee Park Avenue Winter's transformation into Park Avenue Spring, so dust off those résumés.
