Bob Komanetsky, the chef-owner of Completely Sauced food truck who recently began helming the kitchen at Mac’s Local Eats, has parted ways with the restaurant, effective Wednesday, May 10. Komanetsky cited “philosophical differences” as his reason for leaving.

“During my time there I developed some good relationships with some great people,” he said. “I think Tamm Avenue is a great establishment in a great neighborhood. You couldn’t ask for a better place than Dogtown, if you ask me. It’s been my pleasure to help things get up and running and I wish Tamm Avenue and Mac’s great success.”

Komanetsky’s departure from Tamm doesn’t necessarily mean that the Completely Sauced truck, which has been on hiatus, will hit the road again in the near future, though.

“It’s an asset that I have and if I can utilize it I will,” Komanetsky said. “If I decided to pursue that right now, it’d take me a month to get up and running.” He added that the food truck scene has changed significantly.

“I was No. 16 out of the gate, and now there are probably well over 80 trucks at this point,” Komanetsky said. “I’m really not sure what lies ahead, or where I’ll land, but I’m exploring several opportunities. One thing that I can tell you for sure is that I’ll always remain 100 percent from scratch, local and high quality. I have no intention of leaving the culinary industry at this point, and I’m looking forward to what’s next for sure.”
