Heather Bertinetti, who was the pastry chef at Alto and Convivio, has moved into the kitchen at the Lion and will also do desserts for John DeLucie’s forthcoming Crown.
After a kerfuffle between David Chang and Serious Eats over the cost of Mexican Coke, the Tweeting chef has apparently lowered the price of the sought-after soda.
Meanwhile, another Tweeting chef will take over LTO once Leah Cohen is done with it. Eddie Huang will do an $88 five-course meal centered on blue crabs.
