THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Timothy Dean Bistro Restaurant Review: Timothy Dean is a young African-American chef whose rise in the gastronomic firmament has included stints with such chefs as Alain Ducasse and Jean-Louis Palladin. Despite such mentors, he hasn’t completely turned his back on his humble local roots; the bill of fare at his namesake Fells Point bistro may involve lobster and truffles, but it also includes a frequent and popular special: chicken wings and waffles. The waitstaff is breezy and T-shirt clad, the clientele fun-loving and diverse, and the dining room, decorated in warm rosy tones with copper-topped tables and graceful fan-backed chairs, is lovely, but can be noisy. Dean’s contemporary French-American cuisine doesn’t disappoint, though. Signature dishes include Palladin chestnut soup, butter-poached Maine lobster over truffle-enhanced macaroni and cheese, day-boat scallops with fricassée of wild mushrooms, and a molten chocolate cake that’s a little bit of heaven on the tongue.
