Chef Shifts

STREETERVILLE— Nicole Pederson (Lula Cafe) has replaced executive chef Seth Siegel-Gardner at C-House. Siegel-Gardner is moving to London with his wife while she attends grad school. [312 Dining Diva]

RIVER NORTH— Sarah Kosikowski (formerly of Las Vegas's Michael Mina at the Bellagio) is heading up the pastry team at the Trump Hotel. Kosikowski was a 2009 nominee for the James Beard Foundation Awards Rising Star Chef of the Year. [Grub Street Chicago]

LINCOLN PARK— Edward Walker has replaced Satko Ibrahimovic at Sprout. Word is Sprout will finally open tomorrow, and hopefully we'll get some more details on this $120 organic entree that's got everyone hemming and hawing. More changes in the neighborhood: Kate Neumann (mk, Alinea), will replace Elizabeth Dahl as pastry chef at BOKA. Dahl, along with husband Tim (Blackbird), is moving to Wisconsin. BOKA has also hired mixologist Benjamin Schiller (In Fine Spirits). [Metromix; Time Out Chicago]

SOUTH LOOP— Aaron Deal (of Tristan in Charleston, S.C.) is now the executive chef of Custom House, replacing executive chef/partner Shawn McClain. McClain has chosen to focus on Green Zebra and Spring but will remain a part owner of Custom House. Deal, another JBF Rising Star Chef nominee, is definitely one to watch. [Dish]
