A small shake-up is happening over in Venice, as Dry Tour wine bar and restaurant changes its name from the slightly parched-sounding opening title to Code, which sounds sort of like a bad velvet rope nightclub. The name change also brings about a slight front-of-house alteration, as co-owner Aaron Turnbull is stepping down as GM, while retaining a stake in the business, to be replaced by Aileen Riako Watanabe. The chef, menu, and small plates remain the same. [Yo! Venice!]
