Hoping to bring rumors into reality or weed them out entirely, we contacted Joachim Splichal’s reps to confirm or deny any financial involvement with Walter Manzke’s next project, as one Eater-reading rumormonger speculated about Manzke’s departure from Church & State. JS2 Communications’ Amanda White clarifies “He and Walter are friends, but there’s nothing in the works in terms of doing a restaurant together.”
