Jose Rego has confirmed that he has left Riccardo Ullio's restaurant, Escorpion. When asked why he is no longer working for Ullio, Rego had this to say via email:
The reason why I left is because Riccardo is a very unstable person. When the business is not doing well, he's decision making tends to be all over the place. I worked at Escorpion since August and he has had me change the menu more than 6 times. When Escorpion wasn't doing well he became a mad man and we all felt like we were walking on eggshells constantly. And I refuse to work for someone like that ever. Where am I going? I'm definitely leaving Atlanta. I'm looking into possibly going to either California, Chicago, Boston or Miami. We will see.Eater Atlanta reached out to Ullio's representation for confirmation or a statement, but they have been unable to provide it. The word on the street is that a chef from Sotto Sotto is now cooking in Rego's place.
