Gary Menes and Palihouse sure felt like a odd coupling, something we’d noted when the announcement first appeared in L.A. Times. While Menes cooks up a new venture with his former Palate partner, Squid Ink reports that Michael Bryant, a veteran of Joe’s and Bin 8945 who was last found as the exec chef at Father’s Office, is stepping in to fill the void at The Hall at Palihouse. We imagine he’ll enjoy a longer stint here than Menes, that is, if the restaurant itself lasts more than seven months. [Squid Ink]
