Team Redhead Onboard at Permanent Brunch

We’ve been dying, just dying for the Redhead to start brunch service, but it looks like that isn’t going to happen for now. But there’s really good news: We hear, and the restaurant confirms, that chef Meg Grace and her partners are consulting on Lesly Bernard’s new project, Permanent Brunch. A tipster tells us the restaurant is opening in a matter of days, though EV Grieve just spotted a stop-work order on the building. Reps haven’t responded to our inquiries (among other things, we’re curious to know whether Colin Alevras is still onboard — it’s hard to believe he’d be working with a consulting team), and Permanent Brunch has temporarily disconnected the number that ran in the magazine back when it was supposed to open in the fall. We’ll let you know if and when we hear more.
