According to an e-mail message I just received from The Brad and former Mansion executive chef John Tesar’s comments on his Facebook page, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek has closed the Chef’s Room at The Mansion. Tesar writes on Facebook: “John Tesar is sad that the Chefs room closed today [Thursday] and that the Mansion is giving up!”
Although I am sad that the Mansion has closed the Chef’s room, I doubt they are giving up. They may just be adjusting to the reality of the current sad state of fine dining. Not to mention the fact that they have not replaced Tesar with a high-profile chef to attract diners to the Chef’s Room. I will follow up with a phone call in the morning.
