Wayne’s Taquet, the namesake of chef Jean-Francois Taquet, has been bought (or is about to be bought, depending on who you talk to) by the current manager and chef (Taquet himself actually lives in New Zealand).
Update: The name “Taquet” will live until the end of the summer. Current chef Francis Layrle will continue as head of the kitchen. Apparently his style is “more formal” than Taquet’s.
(uh oh. just what we need. more formality.)
