Chef Cyrus Keefer, formerly of Fork & Wrench and Birroteca, will be opening his own restaurant in Hampden later this year. Called Piqué, the 25-seat restaurant will feature Asian-inspired French cuisine made with seasonal ingredients.
The chef, who has cooked twice at the James Beard House in New York City and was featured by StarChefs.com for his culinary prowess, is raising funds for his endeavor via Kickstarter. There will also be a pop-up fundraising event on Thursday, January 22, hosted by Sotto Sopra, located at 405 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. The evening will start with a reception and fundraising silent auction at 6:30pm. accompanied by passed hors d’ouevres and adult libations. The five course tasting-style seated dinner will follow at 7pm, featuring a sample of what restaurant goers can expect at Pique. Guests will also receive information packets on the new restaurant and be asked to donate to the Kickstarter campaign.
