The rumors posted on Eater and elsewhere about Norman Van Aken being fired from Norman's 180 in Coral Gables apparently aren't true. According to Norman's 180 co-owner Kim Wood's Facebook page, "Norman's 180 and Chef Norman Van Aken are alive and strong!!" More details to come as the story unfolds...
UPDATE: Norman Van Aken has just tweeted the following: "I am still Chef at Norman's 180 and Chef Phil B is still there too. Rumors otherwise are bogus. Cooking in Nashville. Back in 180 on 10/19!"
That should put the gossip to rest.
