Five months after his promotion to executive chef, Ben Cohn at ~SPRUCE~ has stepped down as the executive chef for personal reasons and to spend time with his new baby and wife. Mark Sullivan remains in the kitchen, as before, and will continue to be the culinary leader as chef-partner. There is no word at this time about looking for a replacement for Cohn.
