Anyone who follows ~ABSINTHE BRASSERIE & BAR~ chef Jamie Lauren’s Twitter feed knows she has been in Los Angeles quite a bit these days, and it looks like she is going to be spending a lot more time down there in a couple months when she moves there full time. Wah. SF loses another talented female chef.
She doesn’t have a gig lined up yet, but it does change the ballgame for the chef that ultimately gets picked up as her replacement, and for the Absinthe group’s new restaurant in the former Citizen Cake Hayes Valley location. In the meantime, come hang out with her at my Hop Dog Happy Hour on April 14th at the Ferry Building. Oh, and get fired up to make her killer deviled eggs after watching this cool how-to video on CHOW.
