Zakarian Says He’s Still at Country

Geoffrey Zakarian has denied a report that he is out at Country . Its nonsense. Adam Block and I are full partners, says Zakarian. Its been the same thing, this rumor, for three years. Its absolutely false. Its hard to say who has the time to do this sort of thing, to spread rumors for the sole purpose of trying to damage someones reputation. Over the weekend, Zakarian told us he was busy working on the menu for Country Steak -- an unlikely task if he were actually leaving the restaurant.
