Acclaimed chef Tom Valenti has been hired by the bosses of boldfacer-beloved restaurant Le Cirque to be the restaurant’s new executive chef.
Valenti, who ran the pioneering Upper West Side favorite Ouest until 2015, will team up with fellow chef and Food Network star Amanda Freitag at the Midtown eatery.
Co-owner Mauro Maccioni told us, “Tom has started and we are excited. I’ve always loved his straightforward style. The ace up his sleeve will be the wonderful Amanda Freitag.”
They are getting ready to debut their new revamped menu this week to Le Cirque godfather Sirio Maccioni and the International Culinary Center’s Alain Sailhac, who will hold a tasting on Thursday.
