After one-and-a-half years as the GM and wine director at ~BAR TARTINE~, Alex Fox has departed to pursue and explore other options. The split was very amicable; he’s currently looking into opportunities to open his own restaurant. I know I am not the only one who will be missing his exciting pairings and passion for wine. You can keep up with him (and his cheeky observations on things) on Twitter at @wineomite.
After seven years behind the stick at ROSE PISTOLA, bar manager Aurora Siegel has departed to pursue other options as well. We had a chance to catch up at Steven Oliver’s annual holiday party, and it sounds like she has a few ideas brewing. I look forward to seeing what’s next for this lovely and talented lady.
