Brian Fowke Joins Mon Bella

Yes, but only temporarily, as per the definition of the word “locum”. News from the inbox:

In a quick turn of events, and as opportunities and stars align, Mon Bella Bistoria lands Brian Fowke on a locum contract as Executive Chef. On the heels of Fowke’s exit as President and Executive Chef at Metro and the much loved Rare Restaurant, Fowke made his first appearance at Mon Bella Bistoria last night.

“Brian brings to Mon Bella a world of experience and creativity. We are incredibly happy to have the opportunity to welcome him to our kitchen. With Brian at the helm, we are eager to see what he creates in the coming weeks. While our concept is classic bistro and trattoria style dishes, we know Brian will also bring his own style and talent which we are very much looking forward to,” says owner and front of house Brad Roark. “The timing of meeting Brian couldn’t have been better orchestrated, and the past couple of days have extremely exciting. Our first round of customers last night were more than pleased.”

So I guess that’s the last word on Rare’s resurrection. Good score for Kits.

  1. With Brian on board, the 3rd time just might be the charm.
    He is solid and does best with a small cozy room.
    This just might work.

  2. As far as the optics are concerned I agree, but Brian’s a good chef and Brad struck me as the type of owner who will keep looking for something until he finds it.
