Partner and general manager Eamon Rockey of Williamsburg’s critically acclaimed Aska is leaving the three-month-old restaurant to pursue a new project, reports Eater NY. Rockey’s next endeavor will be announced in the near future, and meanwhile, beverage director Shiraz Noor has been named Aska’s new general manager. “The news is not as drastic as it may seem,” Noor tells Grub Street. “We’d been planning it for a while now. I’m very excited to continue to maintain the same level of wine service, and also offer our guests one of the most unique dining experiences in the city.” [Eater NY, Earlier]
