When the White Dog Cafe reopens -- perhaps as soon as Friday at dinner -- here is the bill of fare.

Ralph Fernandez, corporate executive chef for new owner Marty Grims' company, has written the menus and oversees the food service. His chef de cuisine, Eric Yost, who will handle the day-to-day operation of the kitchen, is from Grims' Plantation in Long Beach Island; before that, he was in Las Vegas and Naples, Florida. They will maintain White Dog founder Judy Wicks’ sustainability principles and work with many farmers for locally grown produce and products. (Wicks has always been a champion of the underdog, prompting one wag to wonder to me if she'd host a benefit for the two dozen kitchen staffers who were let go in the management changeover...)

The White Dog is at 3420 Sansom St. Grims is planning a second location in Wayne.
