When a new chef arrives on the scene, it is always a gamble. One never knows how the new addition will interpret the established menu or if given creative control how bold or subtle the changes may be. Only a few months into her position, Executive Chef Jessica Shields surprises your palette by combining fresh ingredients from her extensive knowledge of local produce. GMF chose its 5 favorites from the recently launched dinner menu:

  • Hamachi crudo
  • Pork bahn mi sliders
  • Lemongrass mussels (pictured)
  • Bison short ribs
  • Panna cotta

Yet we are definitely eying brunch…perhaps after the holidays when our pants are a bit looser.
