Ken Oringer Leaves KO Prime; Patricia Yeo Leaving Moksa

Two well-known chefs/restaurateurs in the Boston-area restaurant scene are saying farewell to a couple of eateries, and one of them is going to be leaving Boston completely.

Eater Boston is reporting that Ken Oringer has said farewell to KO Prime in downtown Boston, where he had been a partner. Oringer will remain at his other dining spots, which include Clio/Uni, Coppa, La Verdad, Toro, and Earth (in Kennebunkport, ME). He is also planning to open a location of Toro in the Chelsea section of New York City.

Meanwhile, Grub Street Boston states that Patricia Yeo will be saying goodbye to Moksa in Cambridge, as she has received a job offer for a "corporate position" in Chicago. It is not yet known what kind of job Yeo will be doing, as she will keep it a secret until the job contract is finalized, according to Grub Street.

KO Prime is located at 90 Tremont Street in Boston, while Moksa can be found at 450 Mass. Ave. in Cambridge.
