The Scoop: Changing of the guard at The Scottish Arms

September 18th 02:09pm, 2012

Chef Liz Schuster, who had been executive chef for The Scottish Arms until a few months ago, is launching an interactive dining venture called Tenacious Eats. Schuster’s concept will integrate a film screening with a multi-course meal. Tenacious Eats will launch in mid-October with events taking place at Meyer’s Grove in The Grove, as reported by Feast.

Schuster was hired last April at The Scottish Arms as the replacement for Carl Hazel, who left to lead the culinary team at 1111 Mississippi. Schuster and the sous chef she brought with her to The Scottish Arms both parted ways with the restaurant in mid-summer, according to owner Ally Nisbet. Nisbet noted that a decision regarding the executive chef slot may come within the next couple of weeks.

Since Schuster’s departure, Nisbet has spent more time in the kitchen. “It’s been absolutely fantastic,” he said of the opportunity to throw on his chef whites. “Things are working out really well.” Nisbet noted that the restaurant recently changed over to its fall menu, adding starters like hickory-smoked haddock brandade and cabbage rolls stuffed with chipped salt beef and potato; and entrees such as peat-smoked Amish chicken with bowmore plum glaze, pork cheek in a butter turnip puree, and the classic Brit curry dish: chicken tikka masala. Nisbet also noted that the restaurant continues in the same farm-to-table direction that it began nearly two years ago, having recently launched a charcuterie program.
