In Rumors this Week: Michael White In at Setai; Akhtar Nawab On His Way Out at Zengo?
Rumor has it that Michael White and partner Chris Cannon will man all food operations at the Setai Fifth Avenue, including a 15,000-square-foot 160-seat restaurant.
Just three weeks after Zengo opened, Akhtar Nawab may be on his way out. The chef has apparently signed on to take over the kitchen at a popular downtown Mexican.

Top Chef alumnus Camille Becerra will host a series of pop-up dinners in May at an undisclosed location downtown. Tickets are $75-$100.
Top Chef Masters' Susur Lee says he doesn't wear shoes in the kitchen because it makes him feel like "a kung fu master."
