Garrett Brown doesn't waste any time.
Not more than a few months passed after he left his post as chef of Cafe Fonte (where he briefly landed after leaving Branzino last September), when he got a call from Steve Rosen, co-owner of Elemental Pizza in U-Village.
Elemental is going very well and we just decided, 'You know what? This town of ours is not unsophisticated.'
Rosen says they have no plans to grow Elemental Pizza and just want to make the one location they have as good as possible. He says they initially brought Brown on board to consult, but as of Tuesday, he's now the executive chef.
Brown, who has aspirations of having his own place someday, hasn't quite had the chance to put his food stamp on the three-month old Elemental, but if history is any indication, he moves fast.
