GOOD NEWS FOR CAMDEN MAINE: Is bad news for Boston
Boston's loss is great news for Camden ME with one of Boston's best young chefs, Tim Maslow, being involved in opening 2 new restaurants on the waterfront.. Hoxbill and Kurafuto.
Tim (ex-David Chang) was one of Food & Wine's Best New Chefs in 2015 and his Brookline restaurant Ribelle, which sadly only lasted 3 years, was one of Boston's highest rated restaurants. He's been hanging out with Tiffani Faison since then planning his next move.
Kurafuto will be a Japanese izakaya, which is interesting because the Maslow family's 30-year old Strip T's Restaurant (which is one of my favorite neighborhood haunts) went through an pseudo-izakaya phase last year and still serves a mighty fine smoked miso ramen.
