Connie burst onto the B-more rest scene in the late 70s with Crabtree's on Charles St, doing ecellent bistro cooking. Later, she ran Pier 500 in Harbor View, and still later I heard she ran a catering service. Now neither this website nor Google picks her up.
When it opened, Crabtree was probably the best rest in Balto. A strong caveat there--the best if you went in mid-week when no one else was there. Connie was the first female celebrity chef in B-more, and one of the very few of either sex. Her gift seemed to lie in cooking rather than rest mgt; Pier 500 was certainly too large for her.
I hope we not lost her. Does anyone know where she is now?
