Cafe Adelaide, the colorful CBD sister restaurant of Commander's Palace, has hired Meg Bickford as its new executive chef,  Todd Price reports. A John Folse Culinary Institute grad, Bickford was the first-ever female sous at Commander's and now becomes the first-ever female executive chef for the restaurant group, which also includes SoBou.  An updated menu already includes new dishes such as a chicken liver dish aptly called poor man's foie gras, LA citrus roasted gulf fish and breakfast at dinner ie. paneed veal grillades.

Bickford previously held down a five-month stint as head of the Adelaide kitchen while former chef Carl Schaubhut was battling cancer. Schaubhut, meanwhile, is fully recovered and will open Bacobar with fellow Commander's alum Jean-Pierre Guidry in Covington early next year.
