Exclusive: Matt Balke Out At The Rustic *Update

balkeby Steven Doyle

Chef Matt Balke who opened the Rustic sends word that he gave notice 30 days ago and last night was his final shift at the popular venue.  Balke has a beautiful history working with Sharon Hage at York Street, and with chef pal Jeff Harris at Bolsa.  We should have his next destination very soon.   

*Update: A source in the know tells us that Matt will be the new chef at Smoke in Plano, and will start his new gig next Monday.
