Matthew Schaefer In at the Mermaid Inn

By

Matthew Schaefer, who left Bussaco partly because the owner found his style a little too twee for the neighborhood, has landed on his feet, replacing Jos Luis Martinez at the Mermaid Inn's East Village location. Youll recall Schaefer is a Le Bernardin alum. Hes only been in the Mermaids kitchen a few days, so well have to wait for his new menu.
