Roy Yamaguchi is in town tonight
Sorry for the late notice. I was sitting on this information. I sat too long.
Roy's Restaurant founder Roy Yamaguchi is in town tonight. He'll be teaming up with local chefs to produced a five course, fixed-price ($75) dinner at Roy's. His teammates include Nino Germano from La Scala Ristorante; Rey Eugenio,
formally formerly of Roy’s Baltimore; John Taylor from the Oceanaire Seafood Room; Nikki Debrouse from the Marriott Waterfront Hotel; and Opie Crooks, the current, and I think very talented executive chef at Roy's Baltimore
Reservations are available starting at 5 p.m., and can be made by calling Roy’s Baltimore at
I spoke with Roy Yamaguchi a few weeks ago. He's committed to giving his executive chefs room to create and grow.
He doesn't get to Baltimore often, and I don't remember Roy's ever staging an event like this in Baltimore.
