The Valley Forge Casino Resort will be replacing its upscale steakhouse restaurant concept and go in a "new direction" after the chef behind the dining destination filed for Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy.
Chef Luke Palladino late last year opened the 4,400-square foot steakhouse LP Steak at the Valley Forge Casino, his second restaurant concept in the Philadelphia region after Palladino's on East Passyunk Avenue.
The casino, however, said Tuesday it would be going in a new direction after Palladino filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in New Jersey Bankruptcy Court last week.
The court filing said Luke Palladino Hospitality Group had a management contract with the Valley Forge Casino Resort, but on Tuesday the casino said it would no longer affiliate itself with the chef.
"Valley Forge Casino Resort has made the decision to go in a new direction with fine dining and is no longer affiliated with Luke Palladino," the casino said in a statement.
The casino will soon announce plans for a new steakhouse restaurant concept.
