Food News Flash: Bloise Leaves Wish

No details yet, other than that earlier this week Michael Bloise, one of Miami's star chefs, left his position at Wish restaurant in The Hotel on South Beach. Bloise' menus at Wish were as provocative, whimsical, and innovative -- not to mention tasty -- as any in town. Who else served pan-seared foie gras with Cascabel roasted banana, daikon radish, and black pepper marshmallow, or black Chai tea créme brûlée with citrus madeleine and tomatillo marmalade? We wish that Bloise appears somewhere else locally in short time, and are confident he will. And we wish that Wish finds a chef as good, although we are not nearly as confident in this regard.
