So, You want to Open a Restaurant???

Well, have I got a lead for you!!

A gentleman I know is interested in purchasing a great building on Rt. 26 just beside Ceresville Mansion. You know the's a large, vacant, old stone mill. Anyway, this gentleman (one of my Leadership Frederick County friends) and his partner are hoping to revitalize the building and make it something fabulous.

One of the big ideas is to create a destination restaurant on the first floor of the space. They're hoping for fine dining, but lacking any restaurant experience on their own, they would love to hook up with a chef with a great fine-dining vision and help that person to execute the idea.

Have you always wanted to open an upscale restaurant using your own vision? Do you have a solid idea ready to go? Have you lacked the funding? Do you know someone who fits the bill?

If so, please email me (comments will be fine) and I'll put you in touch. Here's the thing though, this is for folks with serious food experience only. If you've always hoped to open a great coffee shop except for that pesky 9 to 5 rountine you've currently got going, this isn't the deal for you. But if high-end fine-dining right here in Frederick County has always been your dream, please get in touch with me asap.

Bon appetit my friends!

I am a Michelin Starred Chef with experience in some of the finest restaurants in the country. I am also a native of Frederick MD that would consider a move home for the right opportunity. If this is a serious individual with a serious vision, I would be inclined to discuss.

I would LOVE to help.....I think that there needs to be some place in Frederick where you can go in a comfterable (non bar or club scene) and sit and have drinks. There is NO place around like this, and I am sure it would be a HUGE hit! How can I help??? I am a 20+ year old who is looking to get this started in Frederick--someplace! ;)
