Recently I had lunch with friends at Brio on North Bedford Road between Mt Kisco and Bedford Hills. As usual the food and service was good. I have been going there for many years since it was Johns Best. Rest assured this new incarnation is better in every way. Paul the owner put alot of time and thought into the renovations, menu ,food quality etc.
Paul and I were chatting and he told me that they were changing the name of the restaurant from Brio to "345". This is not a change of ownership or chefs. It seems that Brio was a registered name of some midwestern chain and they insisted that he could not use the name.
In view of the current economic climate and the resulting difficulty in the restaurant business
in particular, I am writing this to let everybody know that this very good,friendly restaurant remains the same. Same owner. Same chef.
