It's official. The Chasseur is the new name of the Canton restaurant previously called Adam's Eve. The owner, David Tobash, took over the space earlier this summer.
During the transition, chef/owner Mark Littleton left the restaurant he opened on Foster Avenue in spring 2012. He headed to The Grille at Peerce's, but has since left. He was unavailable for comment today.
The Chasseur (pronounced sha-sur) bills itself as a New American bar and restaurant. It's named after a ship that sailed from Fells Point and was used for a successful blockade during the War of 1812. On its return, it was dubbed the "pride of Baltimore."
The restaurant's chef is Sean Praglowski, who has put together an upscale comfort-food menu that includes entrees like Baltimore-style sour-beef short ribs and dumplings (pictured), meatloaf with bacon-horseradish jam, buttermilk-fried chicken with haricots verts, and crab cakes as well as salads, hot and cold appetizers, sandwiches, and burgers.
The chef attended Baltimore International College and has worked at "numerous fine restaurants, country clubs, and hotels," according to his Facebook page.
Good luck to the new staff, which also includes general manager Natalie diFrancesco. For more information about the restaurant, visit its website.
