New Chef for Tap Room on 19th

tap-room-19th-girard-estateTap Room on 19th in the Girard Estate neighborhood has received positive note since Michael Strauss and his team took over. Part of that praise included the kitchen, run by Jennifer Choplin. But today, Strauss tells us that Choplin and the Tap Room have parted ways. Strauss has brought on Elijah Milligan who has been working on Nick Elmi’s team at Laurel and before that, succeeded George Sabatino at Stateside.

Milligan begins today and he’ll be getting his cooking out there through the Tap Room’s specials and further down the line, across the menu. According to Strauss, that menu will still include “upscale, comfort, stoner food.”

    Disappointing. I don’t think I’ll be back.
