Last month chef Rachel Klein left her job as executive chef at the restaurant Aura and bar Tamo in the Seaport Hotel and went on to fill the same role at Asana in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Back Bay. Now Grub Street reports that Aura/Tamo have found a replacement: chef Robert Tobin. Tobin is a CIA grad who has previously worked as sous chef at David Burke Kitchen in SoHo and executive chef at the former Asia de Cuba in Midtown Manhattan. He's also no stranger to hotel kitchens, having worked at hotel restaurants throughout NY state including the Stone Creek Inn. According to Grub Street, he'll be at Aura by summer.
