Eater has learned that chef Mac Jarvis, who heads the kitchen at Capitol Hill's Corvus and Co., will be moving to Las Vegas to take a position in a forthcoming Momofuku outpost.
Momofuku, of course, is a family of restaurants run by celebrity chef David Chang. His growing empire includes 13 restaurants, two bars, and a Culinary Lab spread across New York City, Sydney, Toronto, Washington, DC, and soon, Las Vegas. Chang will open the Momofuku Las Veags location inside the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas resort. The resort website is advertising a late 2016 opening date, though that's almost certainly going to be pushed back.
Jarvis says she is unsure of her exact job title, but that she'll be part of the opening crew at the new restaurant. "I'm bummed to leave Corvus and Seattle but this opportunity at Momo is huge! I could not pass it up," Jarvis told Eater.
Jarvis has previously worked at Ernest Loves Agnes, Smith, and Tom Douglas Restaurants. You can catch her at Corvus and Co. from now until December 10, when the restaurant will hold an 80s-themed brunch with movies and music from the 1980s.
Corvus and Co. did not respond to a request for information on who might replace Jarvis, or general comment about the departure, by press time. Hopefully the young restaurant, fresh off a positive review from The Stranger, can maintain its momentum.
