Chef Jeff Taibe Hosts Restaurant Take Over @ Ecco, May 13th

Stephanie Webster

Chef Jeffrey Taibe is having a little culinary fun before he starts his job at his brother Bill Taibe's new Asian joint in Westport this summer. On May 13th, Jeff will be taking his chef tools on the road to host a 4 course restaurant takeover at Ecco rooftop eatery and bar (above La Zingara) in Bethel. 

When asked about Ecco, Chef Jeff explained, "Ecco is one of my favorite places around. I'd like to introduce the people of lower Fairfield County to a great beer bar serving really solid food. Plus they have a wood burning oven I will be using in my menu." 

On that topic, Jeff says "I will finalize the menu a day or two beforehand once I see what's fresh at Holbrook." He did mention that he will be preparing a wide variety of dishes and the courses will be broken into: Sea, Garden, Land and Dessert. There will be lots of local products: vegetables from Holbrook; shellfish from Norm Bloom & Son and Taibe will be reaching out local farmers for livestock.
