Ryan Gallagher has left Reds Wine Tavern after only seven months as executive chef. The former Top Chef Canada contestant, who announced his departure via Twitter, was brought on as a heavily promoted component of the restaurant’s big revamp last year, when it shed its dated “Bistro and Wine Bar” designation and adopted a more casual menu (along with reclaimed wood and communal tables). Michael Hunter, who formerly ran Scott Conant’s kitchen at Scarpetta, has been tapped as Gallagher’s replacement.
