After a short cooking stint at Bistro Rx, chef Mark Littleton, who spent several years turning out terrific fare at Annabel Lee's Tavern, seemed to disappear—until today when I got a call from him.
He's been busy planning his own restaurant in the space occupied by Crossroads Bar and Grill at the corner of Foster and Highland avenues in Canton. He'll be gaining possession of the property next week and hopes to have his restaurant, Adam's Eve, operating by the end of June.
"We're going to redo the entire place," said Mark, who is partnering with his fiancée Cheryl Gavoni on the project. "It will be a completely new venue."
The restaurant is named after Cheryl's son Adam, who died last year.
Mark described the food at Adam's Eve as New American, "farm to table as much as possible." He promises brand-new recipes and ideas from the kitchen.
Mark, who also received accolades as the chef at the defunct Lulu's Off Broadway, credits Annabel Lee's owner Kurt Bragunier with giving him the experience to open his own place. "If it hadn't been for Annabel Lee's, I wouldn't have had the knowledge," he said. "I would not have had the courage."
