  • Black pudding takes a classy turn when paired with sautéed foie gras and caramelized apples, while corned beef and cabbage with boiled potatoes are revamped with butter, aromatics and a creamy béchamel sauce. Chef Armstrong’s novel approach to these more traditional dishes may be due to his diverse culinary upbringing. Though raised in Ireland, Armstrong was able to expand his palate traveling through Europe with his family and summering in France from the age of 7. Stateside, Armstrong’s cooking has been receiving accolades for over a decade, and with the success of Restaurant Eve, named for his first child and run with wife Meshelle, he seems to have found a home creating dishes that reflect upon his experience abroad.
