CHEF SHUFFLE — Chef Jason Donoho joined Verts Kebap as the chain’s new culinary director. He left his position as research and development chef of Alamo Drafthouse. Perhaps former No Va chef Brad Sorenson took over his position. He was also previously executive chef of now-shuttered Fino. Verts announced this week that it will expand to the East Coast.

DOWNTOWN — Wu Chow is adding Peking duck to the modern Chinese menu, which needs to be ordered a week in advance. Christmas Eve dinner anyone? [EaterWire]

MEALS ON WHEELS — Jalopy is also temporarily shuttering while the sandwich truck looks for a new site. Its current home at the parking lot on West 15th Street and San Antonio streets is being sold. [EaterWire]
