Michael Hall Named Chef at Church Hill Club

Private 2300 Club gets a food-focused revamp.

Posted By on Tue, Feb 18, 2014 at 4:00 AM

Chef Michael Hall, who closed his M Bistro in Rocketts Landing Feb. 1, has sealed a deal to lead the kitchen at the 2300 Club in Church Hill. The 50 year old private club, recently at risk of closing, has a new board president, Tom Yeaman, and a renewed focus on fine dining.

Interior renovations of the Civil War era brick rowhouse at 23rd and E. Grace streets are in progress, with additional garden landscaping planned for spring.

Hall begins his duties next week, offering his signature French-meets-Southern cuisine for lunch, dinner and private events, including wine dinners and tasting menus. He was previously general manager of the Bull & Bear Club downtown and was executive chef at the Berkeley Hotel. A meet-and-greet event is planned for next week to introduce Hall to members and guests.
