Lawsuit Between Restaurant Owner And Chef Settled Out Of Court


A lawsuit that was brought against a chef by the owner of the restaurant that he previously worked at has been settled out of court according to a recent report. The owner of the Greenwich Village seafood restaurant sued her former sous-chef after accusing him of opening a rival eatery that she claimed was a ‘total plagiarism’ of her own.

The owner of the Pearl Oyster Bar in Greenwich Village, Rebecca Charles, claimed that her form sous-chef, Edward McFarland, had copied all of the different elements of her own restaurant. This included the color scheme, the d├ęcor, and even menu items according to Charles.

In her lawsuit Charles demanded that the copied elements of McFarland’s eatery, called Ed’s Lobster Bar, located in SoHo, had to be changed so that they were not a copied version of her own restaurant.

The lawsuit has now been settled out of court, and McFarland is said to have made changes to his eatery to some extent. However, the full details of the settlement have not been disclosed.
