Tim Dornon, chef de cuisine at Uchiko, is jumping ship and joining the team at QUI, the 55-seat, flagship restaurant from Top Chef Texas winner Paul Qui.
According to a press release, Dornon will work as a chef consultant at the restaurant. Qui and Dornon worked closely with each other at Uchiko before Qui left the restaurant in 2012 to pursue his own restaurant ventures. When QUI opens, Dornon and Qui will collaborate on the restaurant’s menu, food execution, and day-to-day operations.
“I think Tim is one of the most talented, yet unrecognized chefs in the city. It’s my honor to work with him,” Qui said in a press release. “He provides a great balance to my madness.”
