Nathaniel Meads joins RM
Nathaniel Meads. No, wait, sorry—Nate Meads.
Remember RM, the Champagne lounge by the Element Collective (a.k.a. Jared Van Camp) people that hasn't yet opened?
Remember Fritz Pastry, the two-year-old bakery that was just sold to the guys who own The Wormhole?
If you answered yes to both of those questions, you are prepared to hear the news that Nathaniel Meads, the original owner and chef at Fritz, has been named the pastry chef at RM.
No pastry menu has been released yet, but there were some clues in the press release that went out. Van Camp reports being blown away by Meads's souffles and madelines. The release also mentions chocolates and mignardises. So, basically, Meads will be doing classic French pastries, to pair with classic French Champagnes. Despite this, Meads seems to be letting his hair down a little. Ever since we've been covering him he's gone by Nathaniel. But if the press release is any indication, he is now going by Nate.
