Side Dishes: Phil Gentile will not join the new Black Door

Montpelier may associate the name Phil Gentile with the Black Door Bar and Bistro, but according to Gentile, the spot’s former owner, “It’s not one and the same anymore.” Last week, when we revealed that former River Run owner Ignacio Ruiz will reopen the space as a tapas bar on May 1, we reported in error that Gentile would come on board as opening host.

It turns out Gentile already has his hands full. “I’m consulting with Kismet right now, and I might be consulting on a new project to be determined soon,” says the restaurateur, who also helped open the original A Single Pebble. “I am still out there, interested in working on a part-time basis on [restaurant] design and start-ups.”

Our apologies to Messrs. Gentile and Ruiz.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
