Chef Gene Kato Leaving Japonais

Gene-Kato-sm.jpgCiting a desire to explore other opportunities, chef Gene Kato has announced he's leaving Japonais. He apparently had a child recently and it sounds like he may want to take off some time to devote to the family, but like other chefs shuffling about these days, we wouldn't be surprised to see him pop up somewhere else pretty soon. Besides, after nine years of cooking thinly sliced New York strip on a hot rock, we might be ready to explore other opportunities as well. [The Stew]
