Area 31 Chef Change: Critchley Out, E. Michael Reidt In
|Chef Reidt is coming back to town|
It's not all bummerville at Area 31: In naming E. Michael Reidt as John's replacement, the restaurant gets a chef who impressed locals greatly during his stint as exec chef of Wish Restaurant a few years ago. Reidt, also from Boston, is currently heading the kitchen at Kimpton's B & O American Brasserie in Baltimore. As we head into winter, if nothing else we can say Reidt gets the better deal in terms of immediate climate improvement.
