I am greatly saddened to hear that Chef Arturo Paz has parted ways with Tex Mex and Beyond in Berlin, Md. I just recently reviewed the restaurant and was greatly impressed with Chef Paz and what he accomplished there during their very difficult opening period. I am planning on returning and sampling the new chefs abilities. I will let you know what I find.
