On the heels of Taste and See’s one-year anniversary in Old Town, chef Jason-Paul Febres is working on a second venue in the area where he could offer private events and cooking classes.

“There’s a lot of stuff in the works,” he says. “The only thing that is for sure is that we want to open a venue in a better spot around downtown.”

When the new one opens, Febres will close his original Taste and See on East Harry.

“I feel like it’s too far from us,” he says.

“Old Town has a lot of potential,” Febres says. “We want to work in creating our own area, our own concept.”

He says his Old Town restaurant at 255 N. Washington has worked out well.

“Very well. I’m very happy. I’m glad we made that move.”

Febres says he wants to do something “very, very modern and high class.”

He’s not sure when the new place will open.

“I’m really hoping for early next year. What I want and what is possible is not the same.”
