CHEF SHUFFLES— A major announcement from Orange Rouge chef Aaron Langille: "It's with a heavy heart that I announce my departure from Orange Rouge. Creative differences and a new baby have demanded a change. Merci!" Pastry chef Kyle Croutch left the Chinatown restaurant less than three weeks ago and another cook, Julio Mendy, is now at Le Mal Nécessaire. Orange Rouge opened last October. [Twitter]

CHEF SHUFFLES— Giuseppe Sacchetti, the executive chef at Wienstein & Gavino's, is also on the move: "The Grand Prix crowds have come and gone, the people have been fed. Could not think of a more beautiful way to end over two years at such a landmark. A huge thanks to the whole team at W&G, I've thoroughly enjoyed working and learning alongside you all." [Wire]
