Telegraph restaurant in Logan Square will close after service on June 7 in order to change its concept, its owners said Thursday in a press release. They hope to reopen in early July, without the wine-centric restaurant's executive chef, Johnny Anderes. The owners called Anderes' departure "an amicable parting."
"They (the owners) were going in a different direction, and I decided I was going to leave,” Anderes said by phone, confirming that he has cooked his last meal at Telegraph. “I have a three-month-old daughter, and we're hanging out with my partner's family on the Upper West Side (New York), ... but otherwise I don't have a grand plan.”
On a Facebook post, the chef said, “In the short term, I plan on taking some quality time with my new family.”
