Talented young chef Grant Klover, a recent graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, has already bid adieu to two-month-old bakery and bistro Baked in Kansas City (reviewed this week in The Pitch) after, he says, "continual disagreements" with the restaurant's owner, Frank Sebree.
Klover, who left his post last Friday, says he has been interviewing with three high-profile local restaurants. Executive chef Liz Huffman continues to oversee operations at the venue as well as the kitchen at the Majestic Steakhouse.
Frank Sebree tells The Pitch: "Grant was a nice guy. We wish him the best of luck."
Sebree says he has just hired chef Max Sanchez from the Michael Smith and Extra Virgin restaurants to oversee the Baked in Kansas City kitchen during the lunch hours.
"He's very talented and will be working closely with Liz Huffman on our lunch menu."
