Eater reports that chef Josef Centeno left Lazy Ox Canteen today to devote more time to his new Downtown restaurant, Baco Mercat. Taking over for Centeno, whose touch vaulted the restaurant into many local and national critics’, and chefs’, best-of list over the past three years, is Perfecto Rocher, who claims a tour-of-duty at El Bulli and may also grace a rumored Spanish project from Ox owner Michael Cardenas.
