The Bar Director for Locanda Is...


Brian MacGregor, getting me tipsy.

After three years of doing a swell job behind the horseshoe bar at Jardinière, Brian MacGregor is going to be the bar director for Craig and Anne Stoll’s upcoming ~LOCANDA~ on Valencia. MacGregor says he’s going to be carefully selecting spirits for the bar program, looking to the old country for flavors and influences (Rome, Lazio)—but in his trademark style, will be putting a modern (and I’d also say spiritous) twist on things. His last day at Jardinière is September 9th, and he’ll be starting with Locanda in mid-September. Cin cin!
