George Sabatino, whose culinary trajectory rocketed toward the stratosphere in the year-and-then-some since signing on to open Stateside, is putting the East Passyunk hot-spot in he rear-view. Where he’s going next remains to be seen. However, his replacement has been found. This morning a rep for Stateside told Grub that Elijah Milligan has been hired to pick up where Sabatino leaves things after today’s service. Milligan, who has been working in restaurants since he was 13, has an impressive background that includes stints at such praiseworthy places as Le Bec Fin, a. kitchen, Vernick Food and Drink, and most recently Bar Ferdinand. Here’s hoping he a can keep Stateside’s momentum going.
