Jimmy Haber and Laurent Tourondel have broken their silence about the rift in the BLT empire. Haber says he wanted to bring in “top-tier chefs” to spearhead new restaurants, including a casual Italian concept, and Tourondel was unhappy that Haber seemed to be talking to new chefs behind his back. He left without receiving a payout. [Crain’s]
