Top Chef Blais Leaves Home

After less than a year on the job, former "Top Chef" finalist, Richard Blais has resigned as executive chef of Tom Catherall's "Home" restaurant on East Paces Ferry. Having been retooled and renamed from "Posh" this past Spring, the addition of Blais made a reservation difficult to obtain, and saw the restaurant earn a 4 star review, it will be interesting to see how they fare without the Celebrity element. Repeat Atlanta!

Any idea where he's going? My guess is New York...it would sure suck for the city to lose another "name" chef.

Blais will act as culinary director for a new high-end burger joint called "FLIP". The restaurant has been delayed for months and is said to be opening in West Midtown near Huff Road. Calling the concept a “modern burger boutique,” the two have fashioned a menu that sports slider-sized burgers of a po’ “boyger” with grilled shrimp, fried lemon and spicy tartar sauce as well as there being an assortment of molecular milkshakes, including a Krispy Kreme flavor.
