Chicago Chef to Bring Pop-up Dinners to Portland

According to Eater Maine Chicago chef Brandon Baltzley will be putting on a series of pop-up dinners in Portland later this month starting July 28.

Brandon Baltzley, the bad-boy chef and media darling of Chicago, has apparently been holing up in Maine, working on a farm outside of Bangor since March. And now he is bringing CRUX, the pop-up dinner concept he pioneered in Chicago last fall, to Portland, in partnership with Joel Beauchamp of Food Coma TV.
