A New York-based group of vegan restaurants that recently expanded to Boston has cut ties with one of its founders, and it could result in a name change for the eateries.
Eater New York is reporting (via the Wall Street Journal) that Chloe Coscarelli and ESquared Hospitality have gone their own ways after a legal battle, and now Coscarelli is seeking to get her name taken out of the group of dining spots, saying that "I will protect the integrity of my brand." The relationship between Coscarelli and ESquared started to unravel last year, even as the group of restaurants expanded, including a new one that came to Boston's Seaport District last month. (Another new shop is being planned for the Fenway.)
Chloe Coscarelli is known in part for being the first vegan chef to win the Food Network's "Cupcake Wars."
