In case you haven’t heard, Barton Seaver has split from the restaurants that made a name for him. Hook and newly opened, Tackle Box both of the Pure Hospitality group “seem” to be thriving on M Street in Georgetown. Though apparently, that may not be the case. (click “apparently” for A LOT of gossip!)
Josh Whigham, the restaurant’s chef de cuisine, has assumed control of the kitchen. A move that owner Jonathan Umbel said had already been in place.
The news broke last week here. Sounds like the break was a bit bitter!
