New chef at Adrian's this summer
To all the lucky people living in or visiting the outer Cape this summer, you’re in for a culinary treat. One of greater Boston’s most beloved chefs, Will Gilson of Cambridge’s Garden at the Cellar, will be taking over the kitchen at Adrian’s in Truro from May 26 through October. He is known for farm-to-table cooking (his family owns a herb farm) and creative flourishes such as his famous rosemary truffle fries or foie gras and doughnuts. Enjoy!
I have mixed feeling on this. I've sampled chef Gilson's food at a couple of fund raisers, not at the Garden unfortunately, and I agree he's a very good chef. But....the affect that a "Pop-Up" restaurant http://www.seriouseats.com/2011/01/bo... may have on established local restaurants which struggle year round (or at least year-to-year) on the cape, just to reap the benefits that a few short summer months may provide troubles me very much. The loyalty, goodwill and struggles that the year round restaurateurs/chefs endure will most certainly be watered down by what can be described as literally a "fly-by-night gypsy restaurant". A pop-up that has no commitment to the community beyond October flies in the face of what I look for when I spend my cash in a 'local' restaurant. End of rant.
