Clark’s loss is Randolph, New Jersey’s gain, as celebrity Chef Eric LeVine moves on from his tenure at Paragon Tap and Table, a craft restaurant he helped establish on Central Avenue in 2014. His new place is Mr. Crabby’s Craft Kitchen + Bar, where he serves officially as executive chef, and unofficially as a budding hydroponic gardener.

And while Paragon is still producing exciting entrees and serving-up one of the area’s best beer menus since LeVine’s departure last Summer, it’s a bummer to lose a James Beard nominated Chef who won Food Network’s coveted “Chopped” championship.

In a 2017 interview with Westfield Area, LeVine said Clark was a perfect location for Paragon since it was right off the Garden State Parkway and near so many thriving communities.
