Chef Switcheroo at Lazy Ox Canteen

Perfeto and his pig
We loves the Twitterverse. Chef Perfecto Rocher - the Spanish chef who replaced Josef Centeno at Lazy Ox in Little Tokyo - tells the world that he is no longer with the restaurant, but working on something new and "exciting." We don't know what prompted the move, considering he was slowly becoming a critic's darling. What we do know: He is not working at the paella restaurant that he was supposed to open with Ox owner Michael Cardenas. Rocher's replacement is Travis Chase from the Tin Table in Seattle, according to Eater. And Cardenas is in talks with "a big name chef" for the Santa Monica paella project.
