Espinal

Updated.

Krista Espinal, the founding chef of Malcolm’s in Schenectady, who helped define the local-seasonal ethos and small-plate fare that earned a rave review from Susie Davidson Powell, was fired in recent days, just four months after Malcolm’s opened. The news first appeared as a Trim Areli Stud Vince Tote Leather Camuto Navy Goldtone x8qfnWPInH.

Espinal returned my call this afternoon. She told me that after devoting much of her life to the restaurant since being hired in January, including marathon weeks and even postponing her wedding while the new venture found its footing, Malcolm’s owner Nate Germain terminated her after they clashed over what she considered a minor issue. She said did not want to rehash the matter further in a public forum. She does not have immediate plans, she said, beyond caring for her fiance, who had back surgery on Tuesday. 

Germain has not replied to my inquiries. More if I hear from him.

Malcolm’s opened in early March. It is located at 617 Union St. Call 518-344-4599. 

Prior to Malcom’s, Espinal was Ric Orlando’s chief lieutenant, spending a year as chef de cuisine at New World Bistro Bar in Albany. Powell said in her review of Malcolm’s:

Luxuries Body Fine 'Orsola' Pure London Cross Leather Taupe Bag Take it all in: Krista! Kindles! Open kitchen! Farms! Should you need proof of a rising tide elevating the local dining scene, Malcolm’s might be the most refreshing new arrival since Peck’s Arcade kick-started Troy. This isn’t just a shot in the arm for Schenectady, it’s two defibrillator paddles at once.
