Michel Richard Abandons LA Consulting Gig -- Citrus at Social Hollywood Will Go to Anisette's Alain Giraud
Citrus at Social Hollywood is experiencing a change-over. Again. This time it's the restaurant's big name chef Michel Richard's decision to permanently commit to D.C., with Alain Giraud taking over consulting kitchen duties at the lavish Jeffrey Chodorow-owned business, reports the Daily Dish. Richard will take the Citrus brand and name with him, too, but what the revamped place will be called under Giraud, who once was Richard's longtime chef at the original Citrus on Melrose before Richard went to Washington and Giraud settled at Santa Monica's Anisette be called remains unknown.
