Philly chef Jim Burke got a good write up in the Village Voice for his delicious pasta at Stephen Starr's Caffè Storico in NYC. Chef Burke—the former F&W Best New Chef who owned fine dining temple James in Queen Village—left town when Starr tapped him to run the kitchen at the renovated New York Historical Society. Of all the cooks we've lost to the big city, this one hurts the worst. James was a shining beacon of haute cuisine in a neighborhood filled with banh mi joints and washy-washys. Please come back, Jimmy. We're ready for you this time. We'll call if we're going to be late, and we won't stay out all night. Really. [VV via Eater NY]
