Bryan Sikora Out, a.kitchen on the Hunt for New Chef

It was pretty well known that Bryan Sikora, who rose to fame with ex-wife Aimee Olexy at Django and Talula’s Table, was planning to depart from a.kitchen in Rittenhouse, where he’d been since it opened two years ago. For whatever reason, his departure came sooner than later, and as of yesterday, he’s out. The Insider reports Sikora will head to Wilmington, DE, to open a market-bakery called La Fia.

For now, existing sous chef Val Stryjewski will lead the line at a.kitchen, and he’s also in the running to become executive chef, according to proprietor David Fields. He’s currently interviewing and tasting with a roster of candidates from around the country. The chosen chef will oversee both the existing bistro and the new spot Fields is opening next door, in the former Kiehl's. We’ll keep you posted.
