Lunchtime Link: Bad News Day

The Post-Gazette ran a story today about the closing of Le Cordon Bleu Downtown and the potential effect it will have on local dining. Didn’t realize it had an effect on local dining? Psshaw:

Graduates of the 25-year-old program, previously known as the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute, fill many of the top spots at notable restaurants around town, including Danielle Cain, executive chef at Soba in Shadyside; Kevin Sousa, chef-owner of Salt of the Earth in Garfield; Justin Severino, executive chef and partner at Elements, Downtown; and Richard DeShantz, chef-owner of Nine on Nine, Downtown.

Anyone else going to sincerely miss seeing the white-clad culinary students Downtown?

  1. This was certainly sad news. So many talented instructors there, too. A real shame.
