Restaurant M, the cozy hideaway and gorgeous garden adjacent to the historic Morris House Hotel near Washington Square, has bid farewell Michael Caspi, the chef who helmed her kitchen for the past year or so. To fill the void, the restaurant’s owners Gene and Deborah Lefevre have brought in Aaron Bellizzi, the Insider reports. Bellizzi’s previous stints include a.kitchen, fish and Table 31. He gets cooking at M on Friday. Meanwhile, Ben Potts, who we told you vacated his post as head brewer at University City’s Dock Street is taking over the kettles at Dogfish Head Brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Beer guru Jack Curtin reports that Potts will mash in at the end of the month. There’s no word yet on whether he will play a role in Dogfish’s recent foray into fashion, nor if his hiring was greeted with a philosophical high-five. [Insider; Jack Curtin’s Liquid Diet]
