Chef Peter DeRuvo Leaves Prado
DeRuvo, who started at Prado in January a few months after leaving Sassi, the award-winning Italian restaurant at the foot of Pinnacle Peak, replaced chef Claudio Urciuoli, who went to work for Chris Bianco.
Erica Rich, marketing communications director for the Montelucia, tells me she cannot confirm nor deny if DeRuvo, who left at the end of last week, quit or was fired, and does not know what his future plans might be.
Rich tells me they are currently looking for DeRuvo's replacement and that she wishes DeRuvo all the best.
