After receiving a tip via Twitter, Phaedra Cook of Houston Press reports Leslie Ross is out at Triniti's cocktail bar and lounge, Sanctuari. Despite praise from local publications and well-regarded mixologist Jason Kosmas when the chic Montrose bar opened November 6th, Ross has parted ways with the bar she helped conceive. It's unknown whether she will continue her partnership with Laurie Sheddan Harvey the other half of the Ladies of Libation consulting service and is also Sanctuari's bar manager.

Although Ross nor a spokesperson for Triniti have commented on the split, industry insiders tell Houston Press that Ross will join Treadsack, the restaurant group responsible for Down House and D&T Drive Inn. It's unclear what Ross' role will be, leaving the door open to the possibility that she could be apart of forthcoming Treadsack concepts Hunky Dory, Foreign Correspondents and Bernadine's.
