Earlier today, it was reported that Will Goldfarb was out at Picnick, Smoked, the barbecue cart he opened with Kevin Pomplun in August. Goldfarb, however, e-mails to say that that is “factually incorrect”:
“kevin pomplun is continuing as the director of operations and chef for picnick smoked which has been his capacity the entire time. i will be assisting with the administrative side, though i will be less involved in the day to day operations.”
As for whether or not Goldfarb is working on any other projects, he writes, “i have no news to report on any additional plans other than to continue working towards the success of picnick smoked.” So maybe there is hope for those liquid nitrogen milkshakes, after all.
