    "Dustin Gallagher to take over until they find a new full-time chef. He started on Friday with his own menu, which is a marked departure from Blondin and Kriss’s elevated cuisine."

    Haven't been back since Pat left.

        Yep that's Dusty. He was the chef at Grace before that then the Riverside place with Nav but he hasn't been there for a while.

        I have had couple of pop-up experiences with Dusty. Very clean and approachable food - lots of energy. I like it.
        Haven't done Acadia yet since the transition. They have started corkage on Tuesdays. Patio looks grand.
