Phillips says he wants to take Balaban's back to the classic recipes its original iteration was known for. "We will focus on every element of every dish. That includes the quality, the flavor and the presentation," he said in a statement.

"Unique as a chef, Scott manages and cooks superbly. In a short time he proved himself invaluable to our operation so we reorganized the kitchen to take advantage of his talents and experience," McIntyre said.
