Just at the end of last week, Daniel Patterson and Lauren Kiino announced that they are dissolving their current business partnership. Lauren will be the sole owner of ~IL CANE ROSSO~ in the Ferry Building, and Daniel will be the sole owner of ~PLUM~ in Oakland. The release also mentioned Lauren is currently working on a new restaurant project in San Francisco. Grub Street notes Patterson will be redoing and renaming the Bracina project in Jack London Square, which reportedly has started construction, and it seems they are close to a chef hire. (There are a number of additional details about the developing concept and project, if you’d like to check ‘em out.)
