Changes at Plate Shop: Entire Back of House (Including Chef) Departs


Say farewell to the smoked risotto with uni.

Early yesterday afternoon I received a tip from a reader that the entire kitchen staff at Sausalito’s ~PLATE SHOP~, including chef Kim Alter, resigned at the end of Sunday service. I still haven’t heard back from Alter (the Inside Scoop reported on her departure, but not the entire BOH walk-out). My source pointed me to this blog post by one of the line cooks at Plate Shop, confirming the entire back of house walk-out. (The blog has since been taken down.) Seems there was a big split between the kitchen and some key front of house employees, management, and investors. Which means there’s suddenly a wave of culinary talent available—snap ‘em up, restaurant people.
