Former Plum Lounge chef Adam Pawlak joins Black Sheep

After departing his post at Plum Lounge, Chef Adam Pawlak has taken the reins of the kitchen at Black Sheep, 216 S. 2nd St., effective today.

Known for his creative small plates and inventive dishes, many of which are infused with elements from his Italian heritage, Pawlak will continue bolstering the options at the Walker's Point staple, which is driven by seasonal and local ingredients, along with creative takes on traditional dishes.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to lead the food program at Black Sheep," Pawlak said in a release announcing his new post. "Black Sheep is a great concept to work with ... there aren't any 'rules' per say, just a blank canvas to create awesome dishes and continually engage guests with something new."

New menu additions created by Pawlak will include scallop risotto with wild mushrooms, crispy shallot and micro greens salad, cauliflower brava featuring spice cauliflower, roasted peppers, pea shoots and radishes, black and blue filet featuring an 8-ounce grass-fed dry aged filet with heirloom carrots, rosemary red potatoes, blue cheese and cabernet demi-glace.

"Chef Pawlak shares our commitment to being a 'scratch' kitchen that includes locally sourced ingredients and goods." noted co-owner Wes Shaver. "Black Sheep is a place for gathering and connecting; through great food, wine, cocktails and brews, Black Sheep continues to be a place for people to come together."

Black Sheep is open seven days a week with dinner service Monday through Saturday, starting at 4 p.m. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
