Where did the owner/chef of El Huipil go?

ToastMaster | Dec 4, 2007 07:45 PM

There used to be a great Mexican hole-in-the-wall on Sullivan Street in Red Hook called El Huipil. Unfortunately, no one knew it was there and no one could find it because the sign was obscured by trees. (I kept telling the guy he needed to put a blackboard sign on Van Brunt). Anyway, it closed down this past year (to be replaced by a decent place with great Avocado fingers or something like that). I've forgotten the chef/owner's name but he was from Oaxaca and was married to a Manhattan woman. I heard through the grapevine that he may have gone back to Mexico. Does anyone know where he went and/or if he's opened up a new place? Thanks for any help!
