Todd English's split with MXDC is official — according to English's team, at least. The restaurateur has reissued a press release saying as much, and a spokeswoman has confirmed the relationship has ended.
A press release declaring the chef and the restaurant had parted ways was released on the wires last week, and republished by multiple media outlets. But the release was removed from the wires, and a spokeswoman for MXDC claimed English was still affiliated with MXDC (and had confirmed as much with the restaurant's owner).
That release is now back up on PR Web, with today's dateline. As before, English says in the statement that the relationship has ended so he can "keep focused on our core restaurant brands". English spokeswoman Susy Ferrer confirmed to Eater that the consultancy period has been completed, and that the chef is no longer associated with MXDC. A spokeswoman for MXDC did not have any immediate information on the change; the chef's name remains on the restaurant's website.
MXDC opened in June.
