Pig and Khao's Leah Cohen fired

Leah Cohen made Pig and Khao a happening place with great food.
She is a talented chef and an awesome person. In my opinion, The Fatty Crew just tried to over power her with their legal clout to not pay her what she was due. Pig and Khao was the best restaurant that the Fatty Crew had. Their other restaurants all are pretty bad in my opinion ( although they are successful). I was a regular at P & K and they treated regulars very nicely. I loved that place and I hope Leah can open a new place real soon.
Like Maharlika and Jeepney, she made Filipino food popular with non Filipinos, but also made a good Khao soi and mixed in some Viet Nam dishes. I will never go back to Pig and Khao, and never will eat at any of the places the Slimy Crew has. I believe every word the article stets Leah Cohen says. I've seen it many times, where landlords and suppliers are not paid and the money drained out of a place.
