One assumes that Deb Paquette’s cult following ate somewhere else during the bereft hiatus between the wee morning hour January 17, 2010 when she and husband Ernie put the ‘Gone Fishing’ sign on Zola’s front door after a brilliant 13-year run, and August 29 when she and her new partners unlocked the front door of Etch.

But judging from the tables filled with ecstatic diners in various states of epicurean bliss, no one filled her role as Queen of Global Cuisine. Paquette has always marched to her own beat, and at a time when it’s all about earth-to-table, farm-to-fork, local sourcing and simple presentation, she imbues Etch’s kitchen with her passion for the exotic essence, hues, textures, and products of the Mediterranean and North Africa.
