The Mission: Last seen exiting stage left at Broken Record, the chef pair of Ryan Ostler and Kat Zacher will soon reemerge at Bruno's, according to Zagat. Like the phoenix rising from Arizona, the Ostler/Zacher regime has returned from a brief sabbatical to take over the kitchen at Bruno's, which has been empty since Chris Kronner signed on at Bar Tartine.
Starting in early October, they'll be doing their signature comfort/soul food under $20 in the Bruno's dining room—the club side of the operation will remain separate—five days a week from 5:30pm to 10:30pm. Given the cult neighborhood followings of both the Broken Record and the Kronner dinners, this latest pop-up has the likelihood of being a hit out of the gates, yes?
