It hasn’t been easy keeping track of Johannes Sanzin. In the decade since he left Bouley, the ever-elusive chef has opened Pitchoune, Sanzin, 131 Duane, Bistro St. Mark’s, even a pair of budget-gourmet soup shops. These days, though, he’s in culinary semi-retirement, having traded the rigors and long hours of the kitchen for what he calls “paperwork” at Pequeña and Maggie Brown, the restaurants he co-owns with Chelsea Altman. With partner Dan DeMarti, they’ve added Olea, a Pan-Mediterranean taverna and raw bar, to their Brooklyn empire.
