Ryan Skeen Out At Pera Restaurants

Ryan Skeen in the kitchen of Pera SoHo
Ryan Skeen was recently hired by the folks at Pera SoHo to launch the menu the new eatery, as well as make changes to the restaurant's sister location, Pera Mediterranean Brasserie in Midtown. Well, the chef, who has had a stream of short-lived jobs at New York restaurants, has parted ways with the eatery after a couple months at the helm.

Owner Burak Karacam released the following statement about the shake up: "The Pera organization and Ryan Skeen have chosen to pat ways as the result of disparate operational and culinary styles that made a continued association untenable to both parties. We wish Ryan well with his future endeavors." Guests should not notice any hiccups while dining at either establishment - the crew in the kitchen (a mixed bunch of American / Turkish chefs) has taken over, and will continue to churn out the restaurant's quality fare. If you hadn't had a chance to stop by, check out our video tour of Pera SoHo here.
