Missing Baltimore chef
Does anyone know if Jeff Smith the former owner of the chameleon cafe is starting another restaurant or cooking somewhere?
Smith has been in the kitchen at The Chameleon when I have been, even since the new chef has been there. I don't think I've visited since the summer though.
Every new dish I have tried has been excellent except one - but that is still a fantastic average. I do miss Jeff Smith's dishes too... but am very happy with the changes to date.
Off topic a bit, but I had an excellent dinner at the Chameleon last night. The french onion soup may have been the best I've ever had (probably thanks to the lamb neck bone that was used in it!). The restaurant's name will change very soon to Maggie's Farm. I just moved to the area and apparently the new owners have been in effect for months now. I've eaten there several times and have been extremely impressed.
