Laurent Tourondel Splits From the BLT Group
Back in September, Laurent Tourondel was in the midst of a global BLT expansion, opening BLT Steak outposts in Hong Kong and Waikiki and planning a BLT Burger for Hong Kong. Now, it looks as though he's got some other plans on his plate....
BLT Group announced earlier today that Tourondel will no longer be involved with the company's BLT Steak, Fish, Prime, and Burger in New York; as well as the BLT Steaks in L.A. and Washington, D.C. The chef will continue to oversee the kitchens in the company's management license properties, and, per the release, will pursue "other culinary projects and new opportunities."
