Gina Chersevani Out at PS 7’s
“It’s like a divorce,” says the popular bartender. By Anna Spiegel

Gina Chersevani at PS7’s.

Here’s sad news for anyone who loves posting up at PS 7’s bar and sipping a creative cocktail from Gina Chersevani: The self-dubbed “mixtress” left chef Peter Smith’s Penn Quarter eatery this week.

According to Chersevani, a disagreement with Smith led to the split. The duo—who’ve been a prominent team both in the restaurant and out on the event circuit—were developing a new concept together this year, but it’s unclear whether or not that will go forward as planned.

“How do you leave a place after three years and separate yourself?” says Chersevani. “It’s like a divorce.”

Chersevani is currently weighing the prospects (a cuptail-ery, pretty please?). We’ll catch up with Smith as soon as possible to find out about his plans.
