BULBS planted in Fall begin to show themselves in March. So it is with Bellwether restaurant on Vernon Boulevard, where the scaffolding has been removed and there is a sign in the window mentioning they will be opening in a few weeks. Further details were revealed in a blurb in Eater today, stating it will be “a seasonal American restaurant from a former Barbuto chef.” Barbuto is an Italianish1 restaurant in the West Village founded by well-known chef Jonathan Waxman, who cooked at Chez Panisse and Michael’s in Santa Monica – think California cuisine. Which I guess isn’t too far off the culinary path of previously reported chefs-in-waiting for this restaurant Preston Madson of Freemans and Ed Cotton of Top Chef. Whomever or whatever, like spring itself Bellwether is eagerly anticipated…
