THOR Update: Chef 'Has Sense to Call it a Day'

Because we haven't had enough reasons to obsess about THOR lately, how about the news that chef Kurt Gutenbrunner has up and quit his post at the hotel's restaurant after a year on the job. "Sometimes you have to have the sense to call it a day," he tells the NYT's Florence Fabricant, who adds, "The departure of Mr. Gutenbrunner, a big-name chef, from Thor is a loss for the prospect of a sophisticated dining scene on the Lower East Side." Just don't tell that to the B&T masses crowd-surfing outside on Rivington Street. (N.B. the restaurant soldiers on with another chef.)
