If the face doesn’t look familiar perhaps the take-no-prisoners attitude will.
Ex-ClockTowerTenant and behind the scenes at the old ClockBar, Chef John Paul Stevenson is a talented young man in a hurry.
He was central in bringing Chef Joshua to our downstairs hangout, Charlies.
John also did a recent stint at Russ and Daughter’s, famous appetizing down on Houston Street.
And now he helms the kitchen at famed Tavern on the Green.
He has his work cut out for him.
Tavern has gone through two other chefs in under a year, the most recent a revered California icon.
But if anyone can please the hungry masses, please the new owners and please himself in the process, John Paul Stevenson can do it.
Just like the pressure in Tavern’s kitchen,
he’s got nowhere to go but up.
