So here we are, just two days into the new year and already we’ve got some chef changes to report.
First off, Pierre and Charlotte Calmels of Le Cheri have let go their opening chef, Waldemar “Val” Stryjewski after a little more than a month (Le Cheri opened in the Art Alliance space on November 20). According to the Insider, it just wasn’t a good fit with the kitchen there needing less of a chef and more of a manager. No replacement has been named yet, but Pierre has been holding things together at Le Cheri since the start while longtime sous Ron Fougeray has been running the kitchen at Bibou.
Chef Michael Cappon of Isabella has just released a menu featuring sweet summer corn that has just come in season. Offered through July, the menu features highlights like a Chilled Corn Bisque and Scallops with creamed corn. All items on the menu use Isabella’s usual Mediterranean twist.
Taking its cues from city spots like Positano Coast and Fare, Conshohocken’s Isabella is going green in its glasses. Mixologists are introducing a menu of seasonal organic cocktails designed to “bring the same respect for seasonal and organic fruits and vegetables to the bar as chef Michael Cappon brings to his menu.”
For $13 or less, you can quaff a Rhubarb Mojito, a Cucumber-Lime gin refresher, a Smoked Cherry Cosmo with house-smoked organic cherries, or a Peach Margarita. Each of these drinks features organic alcohol and some (but not all) organic ingredients.
