Cyrus Keefer, the stellar chef at Brasserie 10 South, will be in Rehoboth Beach this summer. He’ll be heading the kitchen at Eden, which Eric Ruth, restaurant critic and a former colleague of mine at The News Journal in Wilmington, DE, gave three stars.
Eric called the restaurant, which advertises "bold American food," a "gem of a cafe." I’m sure Keefer, who earned 3 1/2 stars from The Sun’s primo critic Elizabeth Large (another former colleage!) for his food at Brasserie 10 South, is going to add even more pizazz to Eden.
In an e-mail, Cyrus, who trained at Philadelphia’s Walnut Hill College Restaurant School, said he enjoyed every minute at Brasserie but is happy to be returning to Rehoboth, where he previously worked at the award-winning Espuma and Nage restaurants.
"It was where I got my start and felt very natural to be back in what I believe to be a very creative area with a lot of open-minded diners," he wrote.
He’d love to say hi to any Baltimoreans who visit the restaurant this summer. Let’s hope he comes back to our fair city some day.
