"Due to creative differences and budget problems, myself and Karloff have severed ties," Visceglia wrote to Carroll Gardens Patch in an e-mail. "I hope all the best for them in their decisions and changes. I will not be at the helm going forward."

The split comes just over a week after the rfor business with a new international menu and a few days following a brief profile of Visceglia in The New York Times Dining section.

For what it's worth, as a customer of Karloff, Visceglia always came across as a self-important little Napoleon. The fact that he would write an email to CGP about the split just supports my observation.

You are both making an assumption that Carroll Gardens Patch didn't ask him for a comment.

No assumption made. A professional would have replied that they were parting ways and left it at that. No need to elaborate with the not-so-subtle dig about budget. I'll happily visit Karloff when they find the right chef.

Haters need to relax

Why some much drama about this? The "Napolean" comment was rude and could be assumed as hate. The same way the previous comments assumed he contacted the CGP. It has become more clear that the Internet has become a tool to disgrace and ridicule.

Post renovation I have been in to "test drive" the Karloff restaurant twice. I found the space to be sexy, innovative, and fresh, perfect for a night out five blocks away from home! Now that they added Vino and a hip vibe, I have my new-old place to kick back and recharge. I cannot speak for personality, but the food has much improved since they let the old chef go. I found his flavors so bland and uninspired I couldn't understand what he was doing there to begin with.
