The former employee claimed that the work environment at chef Chris Shepherd's Underbelly was "rampant with disparaging comments about women and/or remarks laden with sexual innuendo" and "fostered an environment of perverse behavior, sexist remarks, and hostility to women." Representatives from the restaurants denied the allegations. [Houstonia via Eater Houston][Photo: Julie Soefer/Flickr]
