The owners of Gramercy wine restaurant Veritas announced their planned personnel overhaul by locking their entire staff out of the restaurant this weekend, reports Eater. There’s a sign on the door reading “We are now closed for renovations. Come fall, we will be opening a new and exciting Veritas.” New? Certainly. Exciting? For ousted chef Grégory Pugin and crew, probably not. [Eater NY]
