There is blood in the water and the sharks are going wild in Portland.

Chef who rocked Portland restaurant industry now faces reckoning of her own This lady's exercise in naming and shaming as spawned a ton of drama around the food biz in town.

Chef John Gorham steps away from Toro Bravo Inc. restaurants over hostile Facebook posts This guys restaurant empire looks to have collapsed. It's too bad, they had some good restaurants that I enjoyed going to. I always heard what an insane demon he was but never had a problem with him when he drank at a place I used to work. One time I was carrying some plates over my head to a table and one of his drunk employees smashed into me, sending one of the plates right into his designer shirt. His employees, who were getting drunk on his dime got all quite and scared, he laughed it off and over tipped.

I've talked to chefs who are out! They can't deal with all the finger pointing and drama and besides they don't have any work.
