The Scoop: Chef shake-up at Euclid Hospitality Group, The Tavern

Steven Caravelli is no longer the corporate executive chef for Euclid Hospitality Group. Instead, you can find him in Valley Park at The Tavern Kitchen & Bar, holding the chef de cuisine post. Taking Caravelli’s place with Euclid Hospitality Group, owners of Pi Pizzeria locations in St. Louis and Washington D.C., as well as Gringo, will be Winslow’s Home exec chef Cary McDowell, as reported by St. Louis Magazine’s George Mahe. Euclid Hospitality Group owners Chris Sommers and Frank Ubile did not return The Scoop’s immediate requests for comment.

According to Caravelli, last weekend marked his final days at his former position, although he gave notice a month ago. Caravelli stated that his departure was amicable and driven by his desire to “get back to a single restaurant … I’ve been with [Euclid Hospitality Group] for two years, and it was a great experience. We opened three restaurants in two years. I’m exhausted.” He said that with two small children, working at just one restaurant would be “good for family time” and “finding balance.”

Regarding the The Tavern, Caravelli said he’s currently “digging in and training.” He expects to assume a larger role as The Tavern executive chef Justin Haifley (who placed third in this year’s Sauce Reader’s Choice poll category, “This chef really killed it this year.”) spends more time readying a sister restaurant, Cucina Pazzo, for a November opening.
