Jackie Shen Lands at City Tavern, John Caputo Joins Mainstay Hospitality Team

New, 9 comments

Just another Monday with another move for chef Jackie Shen (Red Light, Chicago Cut, Argent). Mainstay Hospitality has announced that Shen will be the executive chef of City Tavern that just opened in June. As previously reported, Shen has been with several restaurants in a short time and keeps everyone on the edge of their seats as to where she'll turn up next. For now, Mainstay will count Shen as a team player.

Also joining the team as chef/partner is John Caputo (Bin 36) where he will oversee operations at Chicago Firehouse until an executive chef is found. He's been brought in to cover until he takes his official post at a yet unnamed concept for Mainstay. Stayed tuned for more on the Shen shuffle.
