Chefs Brandon Felder and Adam Gianelloni Leave Le Foret

Chef du cuisine Adam Gianelloni also departs the CBD restaurant.


As of last Thursday chef Brandon Felder is OUT at CBD fine dining spot Le Foret and IN at Centerplate (which does the food for the Convention Center and The Dome). Todd Price reports that both Felder and his chef de cuisine Adam Gianelloni have parted ways with Le Foret after newly hired management "wanted to go in a different direction" than the kitchen thus causing a "rift" between the front and back of house.

Le Foret is owned by Mike Schexnayder, who also owned the recently-shuttered Dominique's on Magazine. The current manager, Luke Smith, also came over from Dominique's.  Brandon Felder took over as head chef at Le Foret in 2012, after a slew of early-onset chef shuffles plagued the restaurant since opening in 2009.
