UPDATED 1 p.m.: Matthew Antonovich, chef, co-creator and co-owner of Mozzaria, has been forced out of that partnership, while his partnership in Mozz Enoteca & Wine Bar, a business he cofounded in 2010, is in jeopardy.
According to Michael Cooper, who cofounded both concepts with Antonovich, ongoing concerns about Antonovich’s management of Mozzaria led to a July lawsuit and subsequent Aug. 27 ouster by Pallas Partners.
At Mozz, questions about that restaurant’s operational performance have led majority-owner Dr. Mushtaque Juneja to consider Antonovich’s future with the company.
A call placed to Antonovich’s phone last night indicated he is not accepting calls or messages.
