Season seven Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga — and alum of North Miami's Johnson & Wales — announced yesterday he is opening his first outpost of Sbraga & Company outside of Philadelphia in Jacksonville, FL.
Slated to open sometime in early Fall, the restaurant will take up shop at 220 Riverside Avenue in Jacksonville's "Brooklyn neighborhood" (?) According to the press release, the restaurant will feature plenty of "shareable small plates," entrees and an "innovative bar program," with half of the menu focused on "Southern crops and grains."
Sbraga's grandmother is apparently from Jacksonville, which explains his connection to the area. Stay tuned for opening dates and menu details.
