Daniel Patterson has hired a new second in command at Coi, and his name is Andrew Miller. Miller was most recently executive sous chef at Michael Mina, and has also worked at the French Laundry. He fills the space recently vacated by Evan Rich, who’s been working for Patterson for a on and off for a couple of years now and was back in the kitchen while preparing to open Rich Table, which debuts this week. Also, the Scoop reports, Patterson has hired a new service director for his larger restaurant group, and that’s Brick Loomis, most recently at the Four Seasons Los Angeles, as well as a new wine director, Peter Birmingham, who once worked for Patterson at Elizabeth Daniel.
