Re Bruno's: Make that September

Gio Bruno gave us an update today on when Bruno's Little Italy should open in the Mann Lofts building at 310 Main St. He'd hoped he'd be open by late August, but ...

Construction should be finished this week, Bruno said, and once the new stove arrives, a plumbing inspection can be conducted and once the plumbing inspection is conducted then the liquor license can be obtained and once the liquor license is in hand, he can get a biz license and then it's time to hire and train. So the week of Sept. 23 is the new target date, which means if all goes as planned, the first dinner could be served Sept. 24. (Dinner will be served 5-10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.) There will be a number of soft openings, for loft developers Moses Tucker and the Downtown Partnership and builders and finally, the public will be able to check out the cooking of head chef Dominic Bruno (Gio's son) and sous chef Josh Kerns (who Dominic is bringing to Arkansas from Colorado). Vince Bruno, Gio's brother, is executive chef and co-owner.

Two weeks after the restaurant opens and kinks are worked out, lunch will be served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
