The de­ci­sion of Clarkes to re­lo­cate from the heart of Peter­bor­ough to Folksworth is a blow to the city’s bur­geon­ing foodie scene. Iron­i­cally, on the same page that PT food writer Brad Barnes re­vealed the move, chef Lee Clarke who founded the restau­rant be­fore branch­ing out and open­ing Prevost said in his col­umn: “It feels to me we are just a few more pubs and in­de­pen­dent restau­rants away from be­com­ing a se­ri­ously great at­trac­tion for food lovers na­tion­ally.’’ The key phrase is “in­de­pen­dent restau­rants.’’ The in­flux of the mid-mar­ket chains has widened the city’s culi­nary of­fer but the high end is still un­rep­re­sented. And be­fore I’m ac­cused of be­ing a foodie snob you’ll find me in KFC more of­ten than Prevost (birth­days and an­niver­saries ex­cepted).
