As the Times reported last week, Jim Chu, Johnny Santiago, and Kevin Felker are taking over the old Tasting Room spot on Elizabeth Street. We ran into a employee over the weekend and learned that the New American bistro will be named Josephine’s. If all goes to plan, it should be serving a “killer brunch” by early May. The previous tenant set the bar pretty high as far as brunch goes, but let’s hope Josephine’s is a worthy successor, since the waits at nearby Café Habana and Café Colonial can be pretty much unbearable.
