|Former Fish cook Sara Flannigan is following Stollenwerk to his new home|
Stollenwerk has been without a kitchen since the abrupt closing of Fish and Rhino Bar on 13th and Locust, due to misunderstandings or differences with investors. He first gained acclaim for Little Fish in Bella Vista, which is now owned by his former sous chef Chad Jenkins and is regularly busy.
Branzino, which has been getting minor upgrades each year since its 2003 opening, now looks like it has a chance to make a big splash. Stollenwerk is rebuilding the menu, incorporating the restaurant’s European style with his own creations. Also new, the BYO will offer brunch, starting on Mother’s Day and continuing every Sunday thereafter.
