Craig Schoettler Let Go From The Aviary in Chicago

New, 1 comment

For reasons unclear, Craig Schoettler, the executive chef of Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas' cocktail bar The Aviary in Chicago, has been fired.

Schoettler helped launch the Aviary's acclaimed cocktail program in April of 2011 and has since gone on to achieve national notoriety, having been nominated for a James Beard Award for outstanding bar program (for the Aviary) and winning the award for national bartender of the year in the 2011 Eater Awards. A few months ago, rumors swirled that an international expansion of The Aviary was in the works.

Developing, but Eater Chicago has all the details. >>>
