Chef Brion Wong has resigned as executive chef at The Peterboro in Cass Corridor, the Detroit Free Press first-reports. Wong informed the operating restaurant group, Detroit Optimists Society, on Saturday of his plans to take a new position in New York. “We definitely parted on really good terms,” DOS partner Dave Kwiatkowski tells the Free Press.

Wong moved to Detroit from New York in 2014, taking a position as co-executive chef at Antietam following a well-publicized walkout of the restaurant’s opening team. Less than a year later he was on the move again.

The chef took a position at The Peterboro in October 2015, remarking at the time that the owners had given him “a great deal of creative freedom.” Wong’s menu blended American-Chinese flavors with a modern twist.

Kwiatkowski says that customers can expect a updated menu as The Peterboro’s new lead chef Joe Flores takes the helm. Flores has experience from PF Chang’s in Dearborn, Wright & Co., and Flowers of Vietnam where he was chef de cuisine.
