Blackbird’s Chef Assaults Customer?

Holy crap. We’ve written about the South Jersey restaurant Blackbird Dining Establishment before, but never expected the restaurant to be the site of a full-on brawl between Alex Capasso and customers.

Philadelphia magazine’s Victor Fiorillo has the inside scoop on what happened out in Collingswood:


According to Collingswood police captain Richard Sarlo, a dispute took place on Wednesday, October 24th, between Capasso and a group of hungry customers who felt that he had given their table away to another party. A confrontation ensued in front of a packed room of diners, and Sarlo says that Capasso “pushed and shoved” the customers. Eventually, the fight went outside, where, according to the police report, Capasso punched one of the men in the eye. The man was treated by an ambulance but refused to be taken to the hospital. Police were called, and Capasso was arrested and charged with simple assault. The punched man was also arrested and charged with harassment.
