I think This Pretty Much Answers The Jen Carroll Question

chef-jen-carroll-twitter-background

There’s been a persistent rumor running through the restaurant community that Jennifer Carroll‘s NYC project, Concrete Blonde, has fallen apart and that she has come back to Philadelphia. We’ve heard about her consulting, helping out beleaguered bakers, and hanging out all over town. What we didn’t have was any concrete proof (concrete, get it?) that she was back in any kind of permanent way. Until now.

This is the profile page for Jennifer Carroll’s twitter account. See down there in the last line? Where it says “Philly”?

Up until recently, that used to say “Philly / New York”. But not anymore.

Welcome home, Jen.

UPDATE: Grub Street gets word directly from Jennifer Carroll that her Concrete Blonde project in West Village is dead.

    When is the news coming that she is taking of A. Kitchen or Le Bec Fin? Only while she searches for investors and space for Concrete Blonde Philly.
