New exec chef at Fern

Vegetarian spot Fern , approaching its one-year anniversary, has a new executive chef, with former sous chef Drew Trepanier replacing opening exec Alyssa Gorelick.
Expect a new fall menu in early October from Trepanier; he's testing things as specials now. Spanish and Asian influences will be noticeable, I hear, including vegan stuffed dates, housemade kimchi and vegan paella.
Gorelick says she's sticking around Charlotte and looking at opportunities. If you're trying to find her, try www.ChefAlyssa.com (link wasn't yet operational when I tried).

Alyssa isn't at Fern anymore?! Wow big changes. Her food was SO good and the reason I went to Fern. Her dishes were so creative! I can't wait to see where she ends up. Because that's where I'll be.
