Cinghiale/Maestro - article in the Sun

jrl2929 Aug 1, 2007 10:36 AM

Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf will open a new restaurant near Charleston next month accoring to an article in today's Sun. This in itself is exciting as I believe the Forman/Wolf team has done a good job of bringing consistent upscale restaurants to Baltimore. Foreman knows his wine and I look forward to seeing new and exciting Italian wines on the list at this new Northern Italian restaurant.

What's even more exciting is that the chef will be Stefano Frigerio, Fabio Trabocchi's right -hand man from Maestro. While I've not dined (and probably won't have the opportunity to) at Maestro, I have many friends and co-workers who have. I'm sure this restaurant will excel with Frigerio as chef.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

    Si signore (or signora) -- I'm very excited about the opening of this place. And prices will have to be less than Maestro!

      Any thoughts? Yes, grumpy thoughts! Those of us in the DC area are losing Trabocchi himself to a new venture in New York. Now, you're telling us that his right-hand man is leaving, too.

        Actually Stefano left several months ago!

          Did not Maestro beat out Charleston for the regional James Beard award last year? Maybe there's a long-range plan here. The new resto sounds very exciting to a native B-moron.

          I have my thoughts on trying it out. They have two sections - an enoteca (casual) and an osteria (formal). They will open next week starting with just lunch. Yes!!
