Chef Bails on Brand-New Regions Bistro & Bar

He's outta there.

Regions Bistro & Bar was about to open its first location in Scottsdale last week when executive chef Don Nason threw in the towel.

Is Nason heading back to New Mexico? Who knows. But I found an interesting tidbit about the guy online, about how he supposedly used to run a silent kitchen where he's the only one allowed to talk.

Really? Shut up
