Midtown: Creative Loafing has confirmed that Sotto Sotto's former chef de cuisine Adam Waller is replacing Jose Rego at Escorpion, as previously reported on Eater Atlanta. Waller plans to incorporate a wider range of South American influences and seasonal ingredients, but also keep what's working and appeal to "the masses." Eventually he aims to expand creatively and "give people food they've never had before." [Creative Loafing]
