You can add a. kitchen’s Bryan Sikora to the growing list of local, influential chefs who are moving on. David Fields, who owns a. kitchen, told staffers there yesterday that Sikora was planning on leaving the restaurant in the months ahead, the Insider reports. The news follows emails sent here, and seemingly every other food media concern in town yesterday from a cryptic tipster with inside knowledge of the Buccini/Pollin Group sending out renderings of a very Talula’s-like bakery and cafe project in Wilmington, Delaware to contractors for bid. According to the email, the forthcoming business will be called La Fia, and Sikora will take the helm of it in months to come. Right now he’s keeping quiet about what’s pulling him away from a. kitchen, but Fields is saying that it’s an opportunity that’s closer to his home in the western burbs. [Insider]
