I learned in a Studio Gourmet email last Friday that chef Dean Dupuis was leaving Oakland’s ~PICÁN~. More details have been officially released: Dupuis is leaving to join DC chef and restaurateur Robert Wiedmaier at Revel, an upcoming Atlantic City resort, where he will be the chef de cuisine. In the meantime, owner-founder Michael LeBlanc is going to be heading to the South to find a replacement chef.
