Cafe Sebastienne manager Keith Goldman moving to American Restaurant
Keith Goldman, who has been the general manager of Cafe Sebastienne — the restaurant inside the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, at 4420 Warwick Boulevard — will be joining the staff of the American Restaurant, he says, in mid-February. The American Restaurant’s executive chef, Michael Corvino, will continue to wear two hats at the 40-year-old American Restaurant. He has also been the restaurant’s general manager since longtime GM Jamie Jamison left the upscale Crown Center dining venue last summer.
“My title will be manager,” says Goldman, who joined the Cafe Sebastienne staff five years ago. “I’ll be overseeing the dining room and assisting Michael.”
Goldman says leaving Cafe Sebastienne will be bittersweet.
“I was actually with Cafe Sebastienne when it first opened in 1994,” Goldman says. “At the time, I was working for Venue Restaurant, and for the first year of Cafe Sebastienne, the lunch dishes — lunch is all we served at the time — were being outsourced to Venue. After Venue closed, Cafe Sebastienne hired chef Jennifer Maloney and the restaurant began doing its own food service.”
