Where is chef from Bacio's East Brunswick

foodieiam Jan 30, 2013 06:39 AM

Bacio's in East Brunswick/South River was on Old Bridge Turnpike near where it intersects with Rte. 18. There is a new restaurant there now, Taverna Cucina. Does anyone know what happened to the chef of Bacio's? (I assume he's not working at the new place, which hasn't received high marks.) I don't remember the chef's name but he had a good reputation and I used to like going to Bacio's - it was the only really good local place.

    I would start by checking with the current place. They might know something.

      As having been in and around the industry my entire life the last thing I do if a Chef leaves me is tell my customers where he went. lol My response would be.......he went to Canada to take care of a sick Aunt.

      Or more realistically....just.....he didn't make mention.
