WP: Changes at Watershed
The Washington Post reports that Chef/Owner Todd Gray is going to turn over the daily responsibilities of running the restaurant to the Dallas based Culinaire company. The menus at Todd Gray's Watershed (1225 1st Street NE) will still come from Gray, but Culinaire brings something very practical to the table. It's big enough to buy both ingredients, and services, in bulk. According the the Post story, that already represents a 35% cost savings for Watershed. That's huge in an industry that already operates on very thin margins.
