Looks like Scott Disick may not be in the food game after all…he quit on his new NYC restaurant, RYU after just a few month. If you remember the opening was shown on Keeping Up With The Kardashians earlier this year, well Disick is a partner no more. Critics bashed the eatery and Disick got out of there…and headed to Miami with Kourtney for her show, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. Disick’s rep confirms he left the restaurant months ago.
Scott Disick has cut ties with Meatpacking District restaurant RYU. The baby daddy of Kourtney Kardashian — once described by Bret Easton Ellis as the ideal person to play Patrick Bateman in the remake of “American Psycho” — opened the eatery at 46 Gansevoort St. in April, joining forces with Chris Reda, formerly of the Griffin, and Fatty Crab’s Jesse Camac. The opening was met with a flurry of publicity as the whole Kardashian klan, including Kim’s then-new love Kanye West, turned out, and, of course, it was featured on their TV show. But all the pomp and celebrity failed to impress critics — including The Post’s Steve Cuozzo, who described it as “a mind-, ear- and palate-numbing ‘Japanese’ joint” launched by “the nation’s most notorious televised sleazeball.” Now we’re told Disick is out of the place. His rep told us, “He got out of the restaurant months ago. He has a bunch of other projects. He thought he would be in New York more but is spending more time in Miami.” A rep for RYU denied rumors it would be sold, saying, “Things are great.”
