EaterWire AM Edition: Sens Loses Shuna Lydon

Christine Kesler, 9/26/07

EMBARCADERO CENTER—Just opened in the fall, Sens, the ambitious restaurant in the cursed top-floor space of the Embarcadero Center, is already cutting costs and has asked star pastry chef and avid blogger Shuna Lydon to step down. The pastry chef is often the first to go when restaurants begin to cut costs, but in many ways, Lydon—a veteran of biggies like Gramercy Tavern, Citizen Cake, Bouchon, the French Laundry, etc—was the main attraction, so we'd say it's safe to begin casting nervous glances toward Sens. As for Lydon, her next move is uncertain, though we imagine she'll opt for the more established route; her desserts will stay on the Sens menu for the next two weeks only. [EaterWire]
