Check out the article about Dean Street’s New Executive Chef Simon Glenn that appeared in Prospect Heights Patch. An excerpt is below:
Longstanding hits on the brunch menu, such as the Carolina Sunrise featuring a homemade buttermilk biscuit with pulled pork, eggs and a side of grits, will remain. But make room for grass-fed chicken-fried steak with red eye gravy, riffs on Eggs St. Charles, and Bananas Foster French Toast, to come.
“We have a lot more freedom to use stoves and fire,” says Glenn, expanding on the differences between what he will feature at Dean Street and what he has done at Tchoup Shop. “It’s nice to make dessert for a change.”
One testament to the powers of a full range is the house gumbo. Swimming with sausage, shredded chicken, okra, rice and slivers of green onion, it is the most elegant we’ve ever tasted—and the most authentic you’re likely to find this side of Orleans Parish.
