Opening chef Kirk MicKinney tells Eater he has left Farmington Hills' Wicked Table after less than three months. McKinney chose not to elaborate on his choice to exit the kitchens, but confirms his last day was May 16.
The restaurant, owned by Breakfast Club founder Penny White, opened in March and has received mostly positive reviews from critics and commenters on Yelp. However, the restaurant's official Facebook page appears to have been taken down. Eater has reached out multiple times to Wicked Table for comment regarding the staff changes and received no response. Prior to Wicked Table, McKinney was an executive chef at Suite 36 in New York, Millennium Restaurant Group, and Epic Bistro.
