Here's some pretty exciting news hot off the press.
JAM executive chef Jeffrey Mauro is partnering with Homaro Cantu (iNG, Moto) for that revolutionary new bakery, Berrista Coffee. That's the sweets shop featuring the "miracle berry" that's replacing sugar in most of the pastries.
Mauro should bring some innovation to the table as well, considering his pedigree (Charlie Trotter's, North Pond) and legions of fans packing JAM on the regular for one of the best brunches in town. And don't panic, JAM devotees. Mauro will continue his JAM duties in the morning and spend afternoons at Berrista.
There's still no opening date, but look for Berrista to debut in the spring.
