New Chef Richard Lee Introduces Hamachi Jalapeño to Geisha
As the Strong Buzz has reported, Michael Vernon has left <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/geisha/>Geisha</a>. His protégé, Richard Lee, who was also trained by consulting chef Eric Ripert in 2003, is now at the helm, and we’ve got our hands on his new menu. We’re already wondering if “hamachi jalapeño” will be the next big thing — kind of irresistible to order, isn’t it? As for sushi chef Don Pham’s oxymoronic new creation — sushi sandwiches — we’re not so sure.
