The New Deal Café’s recently hired executive chef, Carrie Megginson, was only installed a few weeks ago but she’s already making an impact. She is keen to retool the Café’s restaurant business so that it becomes the neighborhood go-to place for a delicious, informal meal. Megginson is aiming for conscientious cooking, quick friendly service, quality ingredients, reasonable prices and a mix of original presentations and old favorites. She is committed to a judiciously selected menu with breadth and tastiness at a price a canny Greenbelter sees as good value.
The News Review will bring speakers to the New Deal for dinner on November 16 before the 7:30 p.m. Old Greenbelt Theatre showing of Defending Utopia: The Greenbelt News Review at 80. The Café will offer a discount on dinner with tickets to the show. To celebrate, the chef will present some new specials for the paper’s 80th birthday, including her own take on the French country classic, Chou-Rouge Landais, a tangy and warming red cabbage casserole studded with sausage medallions in a warming and satisfying but not-too-heavy meal.
