Zoë Seeks Salvation in a ‘Rising Star’ Chef


Zoë filed for bankruptcy this week, the second Soho restaurant to seek government protection this month. While Tailor will try mixology classes to attract needed revenue, Zoë hopes a new chef and a Greenmarket-centric menu will resuscitate the restaurant. Co-owner Stephen Leffredo told Crain’s that he’s in talks with a candidate who is “not one of the Iron Chefs, but he’s someone in New York who is a rising star.” We’d guess newly freed agent Ryan Skeen if there were more pork in the forecast.
