Chef Shuffles

john-karen-shields-171.jpgHere's some potentially exciting news: Tom Sietsema reports that DC may well have a shot at bringing highly regarded chefs John Shields and Karen Urie Shields into our fold. The couple have left their posts at Town House — out in Chilhowie, Virginia — with intentions to open their own restaurant somewhere in the Mid-Atlantic. DC is only one of the options, but the couple was here a few weeks ago (dining at Sushi Taro and Toki Underground) and John Shields tells Sietsema that DC has "got a great vibe." Fingers crossed?
