Bradford Briske is the new chef at Gabriella Cafe. I found out from Paul Cocking, the owner of downtown’s chic dining room, that former chef Sean Baker is no longer with the restaurant.

Cocking is looking forward to a menu focused more intimately on local, farmers market wares, and expects the seasoned Briske — who worked at San Francisco’s Millenium before joining the Gabriella team a year ago to deliver a refreshed emphasis on local and seasonal ingredients.

Baker’s intensively hand-made foods can still be found at Le Cigare Volant, the Bonny Doon Tasting Room’s spacious new cafe (see post below for newly expanded hours).
