• Tom Sasser, President and Owner of the Harper’s Restaurant Group (which includes M5, Upstream, Zink, and Mimosa Grill) said of his former Corporate Executive Chef Tom Condron leaving to opening his own eatery, “We encourage our people to pursue their dreams.” He laughed and continued, “We do, however, hope it’s with us . . . Luckily Tom had done his job well and developed chefs in each location and we have strong chefs in all our restaurants." Sasser further noted that they are not currently looking to replace the Corporate Executive Chef position, but rather they will focus on hiring within their catering arm.

• Eat Charlotte, a consortium of 28 locally owned and operated restaurants, is featuring $25 for Two during the week of Aug. 14 through Aug. 22. For the restaurant list (ranging from Andrew Blair’s to Zink) and additional details visit:
