Tim Dyson, a veteran of Kali's Court and the Peabody Court Hotel, is taking over the kitchen at Bluegrass Tavern. Dyson is replacing Ray Kumm, who has been guiding the kitchen at the South Baltimore tavern for two and a half years. Kumm is leaving to take over the kitchen at Brewer's Art.

Dyson, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Program at the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute in Pittsburgh, most recently worked as a chef consultant for the new Sobo Cafe in Federal Hill with its owner, Anna Leventis. Dyson will be bringing his French country cooking style to the tavern's Southern cooking menu.
