Chef Evan Funke Leaves Bucato Restaurant in Culver City

Evan Funke has left the building. According to the Los Angeles Times, the chef at Culver City's hot Italian restaurant has resigned from his post and is heading to Europe:

Funke says he doesn't know who's taking over for him behind the stoves at Bucato. He's moved on to other things, specifically heading to Italy. "Gonna do the islands and extreme south of the boot," he texted. Eating a lot of pasta, it's probably safe to say, along the way. 

Under Funke's leadership Bucato drew rave reviews from the LA Weekly, Jonathan Gold, and LA Eater, which called Bucato one of Los Angelee' two most essential restaurants.
