Taste To Take On New Flavor

Seven months after it opened to much fanfare with Mango Gang chef Allen Susser at the culinary helm, Delray’s Taste Gastropub has shut down “for the next few weeks” for renovation and to install a new concept, according to a message on the restaurant’s voicemail and on its Facebook page.

Susser, via email, said he is no longer involved in the restaurant, which received mixed reviews during its short tenure, including a scathing “Open Letter to an Unnamed Chef” written by cookbook author and New York Timescolumnist Mark Bittman.

Just what kind of restaurant emerges from the renovation and re-concepting remains to be seen. Stay tuned.
