This Thursday we are excited to host Ryan Ostler and Katherine Zacher, our new neighbors at the forthcoming Bruno's Kitchen. Ryan and Katherine ran the Broken Record Kitchen and have also worked at Boulevard, Campton Place, Firefly, Range, Quince, and Serpentine. In the near future, they'll be serving their from scratch American regional cuisine and bbq (including fried chicken and parsnip waffles) at Bruno's. This Thursday their menu will be "Far East meets South."
Ryan and Katherine will donate a portion of their proceeds to Burners without Borders, a collection of Burning Man participants who are actively engaged in community-based civic volunteer projects throughout the year. Starting in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, BWB volunteers provided over $1 million dollars worth of reconstruction and debris removal to the residents of Mississippi and have continued with projects spanning the globe. MSF profits will go to the Glide Memorial Church Daily Meals Program, which began in 1969 and now serves 800,000 meals a year to the city's poor hungry and homeless.
Also, so we can avoid running out of food and improve customer satisfaction, we are now taking reservations for 8:30 pm and later. Email us at MSFreservations@gmail.com with a name, party size, time and date. Our reservationist will be checking and sending out confirmations all week until 3pm on Thursday (or Saturday).
