Chef chat: David Katz to N.J.; Eric Paraskevas to new project


David Katz - consulting chef at Morgan's Pier and late of Center City's Meme - will be doing the I-295 shuttle as he has landed at the forthcoming Tavro 13 - the former Old Swedes Inn in Swedesboro. Katz will consult with Terence Feury at the opening in mid-October and will develop the wine list to be complement the menu. (Meme's next occupant will be the crew from Pub & Kitchen, as I reported the other day.)


Eric Paraskevas has been named executive chef of the forthcoming Bainbridge Street Barrel House, due to open next month at Sixth and Bainbridge Streets, across from Beau Monde. Paraskevas' resume includes the Happy Rooster, Continental, Lolita, Slate, and Terra. Its GM will be Agi Czapka, whose CV includes Paradiso, Fork, and Rae.
