L'Espalier Missing Sous Chef -- should I be concerned?

musteat | Aug 15, 2009 10:05 AM

I'll be dropping serious cash tonight for the largest of L'Espalier's chefs' degustations and just got a (routine, promotional) email from them which states: "Now August, Chef Hackney is holding down the fort while Sous Chef Alex Crabb is in Paris for a two week internship with Joël Robuchon."

Chef Hackney is the executive chef. Should I look upon this as having a more senior chef on the line or as the kitchen being short-staffed?

Would you be concerned if you were in this situation, or happier?
