Bella Ciao sold, will become Grange Kitchen and Bar led by Chef Brandon Johns
Following up on our May 29 post about Brandon Johns leaving Vinology, Ann Arbor Observer business reporter Sally Mitani just passed along a newsletter note from the owners of Bella Ciao, excerpted below:
“After 22 years, Jim and Kathy Macdonald are selling Bella Ciao.
The Macdonalds are grateful to the Ann Arbor community for the decades of support. The business is being sold to a group of entrepreneurs led by Brandon Johns, former executive chef at the Chop House and Vinology.
The new restaurant, Grange Kitchen & Bar, will embrace farm-to-table dining and feature seasonal menus inspired by the fresh flavors of local farms and farmer’s markets.”
Bella Ciao’s last dinner service will be June 20.
