Garrett Michael Brown reaches out to say he’s taken a gig at Oddfellows, the perpetually packed Cap Hill food and booze hall. “I’ve been picked up by Linda Dershang as the chef de cuisine at Oddfellows Cafe + Bar,” he writes via email. “Couldn’t be happier.”
Last we heard of Brown it was because his erstwhile kitchen, Columbia City’s Verve, was closing. The beloved neighborhood bistro unexpectedly lost its lease after four-and-a-half years and shuttered late last month. When I spoke to owner Kate Bond about the closure she made a point to say she and Brown were hoping to take the restaurant elsewhere—together.
So what does Brown’s new hat spell for those plans? Will let you know when I do.
