We've just confirmed that the new chef at Palihouse is Michael Bryant, who left his yearlong stint as executive chef at Father's Office in Los Angeles. Before that, he worked as chef de cuisine at Joe's Restaurant in Venice and as the executive chef of BIN 8945.

Bryant replaces Gary Menes, who had served as chef at Palihouse since May and announced this Wednesday that he is leaving to open his own restaurant.
