Laurent Tourondel and partner Jimmy Haber are breaking up their empire, says Florence Fabricant. Tourondel keeps the BLT name, and will stay on as executive chef in all the BLT restaurants in hotels. Haber gets BLT Steak, BLT Fish, BLT Prime, and BLT Burger. Tourondel initiated the break, but everyone seems nicey-nicey about it. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]
