Fine Cuisine Crafted with Love in Prince George’s County
Chef Timothy Dean has returned to the place he grew up to create a boutique, chef-driven restaurant with unique, fresh, seasonal products.
“I grew up in Clinton, Maryland, and as many restaurants as there are in Prince George’s County, they all seem the same. There are no chef-driven restaurants in the area and no Michelin Star restaurants in Maryland at this time. If people want to eat at a Michelin Star restaurant, they have to go into D.C.,” Timothy says.
Timothy looked at many locations for his newest fine dining establishment and finally decided on a beautiful space in Bowie that fits his concept.
“It is American-French cuisine, and we are trying to cater to those who appreciate fine food, wine and Champagne in a great atmosphere.”
Timothy Dean restaurant in Bowie opened on the night before Thanksgiving with a limited menu. The first full brunch was held in December. Brunch is a la carte as Timothy believes each dish should be a la minute, prepared to order, to keep the excitement high. Brunch is served on Sundays only at 10 a.m. Dinner is served Tuesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Timothy hopes to see his restaurant earn a Michelin Star one day especially for the residents and community members of Bowie and Prince George’s County.
“I built this restaurant for the people of Prince George’s County. I didn’t build this for myself. It is time that we put these chain restaurants on notice. We don’t need to settle for chain food when we can have chef-driven, open-kitchen concept restaurants,” he says. “We don’t have to settle for typical or mundane. I believe that people shouldn’t have to drive to Washington D.C. or Annapolis to get top cuisine. I am planning to focus on Prince George’s County because we deserve this kind of food.”
The ambiance and decor are inspired by the South of France. The atmosphere is warm like the French Riviera. The Tiffany Blue color scheme is inviting and welcomes people to come in and eat. Some of the menu items include dry-aged rib-eye, muscles and Chilean sea bass. There is also a full bar menu to enjoy with your meal. Along with crafting exquisite meals, Timothy will be hosting cooking classes and wine dinners as an educational component to get people interested in creating the perfect dish.
After 30 years in the culinary industry, Timothy knows it’s all about sharing his vision with the world and creating delicious food with high-quality products. He has studied under Michelin Star chefs including Jean-Louis Palladin and is also an alum of Top Chef.
And more important than just skill or style, Timothy believes you should be cooking with love.
“Grandma and Mom were chefs in their own way; they cooked from their heart—that’s why it was so amazing, and that’s why they call it soul food.”
