Today comes word that former (ouch!) Nana execuchef Anthony Bombaci has been promoted to a new position at the Hilton Anatole. Official word:

In Chef Bombaci’s previous role at Nana, he was able to share his outstanding culinary gifts with only a portion of the Anatole’s vast clientele. In his new role as Hotel Chef de Cuisine, his influence will be felt not only in our new steakhouse, but in all of our other food and beverage outlets, as well as our critically acclaimed banquets department, where we serve literally tens of thousands of satisfied guests every year.

    I like steak.

  • Brandy

    Please someone give this man his own place…and not a steakhouse. Just a small, intimate, lovely place. We need his talent, we don’t need a steakhouse.

  • What are their “other food and beverage outlets”?Banquets are great for showing off speed plating and prep skills, but not much else. I imagine the most fun he’s going to have in the steakhouse is figuring out how many different ways he can cook broccoli and potatoes.

    if only york st.’s former space wasn’t occupied…

    I suspect the next PR notice coming from the Anatole will be announcing his resignation.

  • Nice, thanks Andrew. Color me enlightened. I’m sure he’ll be able to find plenty of ways to get creative and continue to produce exciting, innovative dishes.

  • As big as the Anatole is, carve out some space and give tony a 20 table spot to do his thing

  • Tony needs his own restaurant. My wife and I first met him in Barcelona at his old gig at the Ritz, back in 2000. We couldn’t believe he was in Dallas a few years later. Now he’s a F and B guy? Hmmmm. Somehow, we gotta get this guy his own place.
