Black Pearl owner Steve Whited and his chef, Mitch Mayers, will open Agio in Baker early next year

Black Pearl, Steve Whited's popular contemporary American restaurant on South Pearl Street, opened in 2005, and while several of the dining dens on that stretch of asphalt have shuttered or suffered from an identity crisis, the unpretentious Platt Park gem has remained largely consistent, despite a raft of chefs that have sailed through the galley.
