Matt Provencher has left Richard's Bistro

Today's Hippo Press reports that "On Saturday, March 5, executive chef Matt Provencher worked his last shift in the kitchen of Richard's Bistro...Provencher says his decision to leave was sparked by his desire to spend more time with his family...Provencher said his next career move will likely be to join the kitchen staff of a different area restaurant...Richard's Bistro owner Richard Vareschi...said he will be calling the shots at the restaurant now and his "very talented and hard-working prep cook" will have a bigger presence in the kitchen...

I thought that Richard's was the best restaurant in Manchester and that Matt elevated the cooking there to an even higher level than Richard had achieved.

Matt - you will be missed; best of luck in the future and enjoy your family!
