Restaurant notes: Uno Pico de Gallo; chef leaves the Hyatt

Shakeup at 15th and South.

Restaurant notes: Uno Pico de Gallo; chef leaves the Hyatt


Pico de Gallo has ended its seven-year run as a BYOB at the northwest corner of 15th and South Streets. The operation is now consolidated across the street at Michael Ortega's liquor-licensed Baja Room.



Marc Plessis has left the chef de cuisine's post at Nineteen (aka XIX) at the Hyatt at the Bellevue. The French-born, Kentucky-raised chef says he wants to open his own place (20 to 30 seats) in town. The Hyatt's executive chef, Richard Hebben, now oversees the restaurant. His own menu starts this weekend.
