Any info about Taquet (in the Wayne Hotel) closing?
I hear that Taquet, which closed for renovations earlier this summer. isn't ever moving back into the Wayne Hotel after all! Does anyone know for sure? My only source is a brief article in the online Inquirer from July 23rd. It would be a sad place to lose.
Chef Taquet has been in New Zealand for a few years now. I heard that the restaurant kept his name but that he no longer had anything to do with the place. Since he left, I have heard nothing positive or negative about the new chef/owner or the cuisine. It just fell off my radar. I work in Wayne so I'll ask around.
I think there was a piece in the Inquirer about what's going on. You should e-mail Michael Kline at the Inquirer.
