Confirmed: Jean Adamson Leaving Freemans, May Go Solo


Earlier, we reported (via Eater) rumors that Freemans chef Jean Adamson was leaving the restaurant’s kitchen. A Freemans rep tells us that indeed she’ll be gone at the end of the summer: “Her plans are unconfirmed at this point, but will likely involve opening her own place. The search is currently under way for a replacement.” When we spoke to Adamson for a Mother’s Day feature, we were salivating over the Mormon meals her mom used to make — it wouldn’t be the worst thing if she opened a place specializing in dishes that incorporate canned creams and Frosted Flakes.
