New Additions to the Crew at Coi

The rumors are true: ~COI~ has brought on Bill Corbett (formerly at Michael Mina) as the executive pastry chef. Corbett will also consult on the pastry menu at ~IL CANE ROSSO~, and he will serve as the executive pastry chef of Bracina, which will open in Oakland in spring 2010.

There is also a new chef de cuisine, Evan Rich, who was chef de cuisine at Quince, and when he was back east, he worked at The Stage House Inn and was the executive sous chef at Bouley; he also opened Sumile, a French-Japanese restaurant in Tokyo.
