Lynn Crawford to take over The Citizen? Rod Bowers won’t confirm or deny
Rumours are flying that Lynn Crawford, executive chef at New York’s Four Seasons, may be returning to Toronto this year. TasteTO reported that the celebrated cook—who worked at Messis and Studio Café before going to the Big Apple—might be ditching her hotel gig and taking over a renamed and remade version of The Citizen on Queen East starting January 1, 2010. We contacted the restaurant’s chef-owner, Rod Bowers, to see if he could confirm or deny, but his response was evasive. “I also heard Jamie Kennedy is taking over The Rosebud,” he said. “I’m not going to agree or disagree with any of it.”
The plot thickens like so much meringue.
