After the closure of Baker & Banker last year, chef Jeff Banker has reemerged as executive chef at ~BLUESTEM BRASSERIE~. He’ll be starting at the restaurant in late May and will launch his first new menu in August. The focus of the menu will remain on American brasserie classics, but with Banker’s own point of view and experience. He plans to work with the existing kitchen staff, with the possible addition of a chef de cuisine in the coming months.
