One of Milwaukee's James Beard honorees is charting new territory about 1,000 miles due East of the Cream City.
The new restaurant at the Ambassador Hotel was named with a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald, an author whose beautiful prose ruled during the roaring '20s. Interestingly, that same prose is an apt descriptor for some of our favorite dishes at The Fitz.
Ambassador Hotel owner Rick Wiegand announced this morning that Chef Jason Gorman will "reimagine" the hotel's food and beverage options. Envoy restaurant will become The Fitz, and the bar across the hall will become Gin Rickey.
Chef Jason Gorman's career includes work at a variety of notable establishments, including The Iron Horse Hotel, The Art Institute of Chicago, Mangia Wine Bar in Kenosha and Dream Dance Steak. And now he'll bring his flair for bold flavors to the Ambassador Hotel.

Since 2002, Milwaukee has seen honors for 12 restaurants or chefs from the James Beard Foundation. And, if you're a food lover who wants to get to know our city better, put a visit to each of these restaurants on your list of things to do during 2017.
It's no surprise that Summerfest is a draw for folks both near and far. After all, it's the biggest friggin' music festival in the world. But lately folks are seeing the city behind the Big Gig. And that's a very, very good thing.
When you're the only art museum in Wisconsin with a sommelier, it only makes sense to establish a wine bar. And the new East End Wine Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, nibbles and a view.

Jason Gorman will be returning to Milwaukee to take over food and beverage operations at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Next week, Chef Jason Gorman will be back in Milwaukee. And he's packing all that's best about spring in his suitcase. The James Beard Award-nominated chef will offer a cooking class at the Milwaukee Public Market on Monday, April 20.
When it opened in 1988, Kenosha's Mangia was big news because it was the baby of Tony Mantuano, who had made his name as chef at Chicago's respected Spiaggia, where he is now chef/partner. These days, Mangia is big news around here again because the recently revamped restaurant brought in former Dream Dance chef Jason Gorman, who had been hired away from Milwaukee by Mantuano in 2012.
Jason Gorman, the chef most Milwaukeeans know from his time at Dream Dance and Iron Horse Hotel, is returning to Wisconsin to Kenosha's newly remodeled Mangia Wine Bar.

We caught up with him to find out what he'll be doing up at The American Club.
