The Lobster Snares a Chef from La Botte

Looks like Gladstone’s isn’t the West Side’s only over-rated seafood trap that’s addressing the quagmire in its kitchen. The Lobster has hired La Botte chef Colin Crannell who plans to remake the menu by about 70% by his own estimate over the next few months. Caution, “ethnic restaurant” usage follows in a Q&A; with Noah Galuten. [Squid Ink via Tasting Table]
