Last we heard from Joshua Gil, our hearts were breaking as the promising concept for a Oaxacan restaurant named Mitla, that the Supper Liberation Front chef was planning with Guelaguetza’s Bricia Lopez in Palms, fell apart. From a completely different side of the field, ESquared Hospitality announces that Gil has been named the new executive chef at BLT Steak, which hopefully gives him room to indulge his myriad of influences. Elsewhere, in the company’s portfolio, the planned revision of Go Burger includes a new toque as well, as Robert Liberato, a veteran of Whisper Lounge and a noted food stylist, joins the burger haunt as its new chef de cuisine.
