Ralph Pagano Gone From Customs House, Restaurant Changes Name

When the brand new Customs House restaurant and gastropub opened earlier this year in Boca Raton, Hell's Kitchen alum Ralph Pagano was at the stove. But that arrangement didn't last long.

An employee at the restaurant confirmed this morning that Pagano is no longer working there. In addition, the restaurant will be changing its name to Chris Michael's Steakhouse. It's unclear at the moment how the name and staff change will effect the menu and concept.
