Ex-Striped Bass Manager Stabbed

A former assistant manager of the Striped Bass who was shot in 2003 was stabbed on Wednesday in what the New York Post says was a mafia-related incident.

The man in question, George Atterbury, is currently general manager of popular New York restaurant Grayz. According to the Post:

“Atterbury, general manager of Grayz restaurant on West 54th Street, told cops he was hailing a cab when three men drove up in a black SUV, got out and stabbed him in the abdomen and slashed him in the face with a boxcutter or razor.”

NYPD sources told the paper Atterbury had ties to the Philadelphia mob. Funnily enough, Atterbury had just been interviewed by the popular New York food blog Eater.

We wish Mr. Atterbury a swift recovery.
