Could it be? Rumors swirl that Chris Schlesinger is leaving his post at East Coast Grill after 25 long and spicy years, selling the restaurant to chef Jason Heard and general manager Robin Greenspan. As of now, it’s apparently “tentative,” though the deal could become official as early as February, and he will remain involved. Very interesting. It’s hard to imagine ECG without Schlesinger at the helm. (Check out the signature pork sandwich that he contributed to our barbecue slideshow right here.) We’ll keep you posted.
