Pub & Kitchen closing to reboot, get new chef

Pub & Kitchen at 20th and Lombard Streets will close after service Sunday, March 31 for a two-week renovation, which also will yield a new chef.

Eli Collins, most recently executive chef of DBGB in New York City, previously was a line cook at the former Gayle in Queen Village and at Supper on South Street. He was part of the opening team at Pub & Kitchen in 2008.

P&K's PR machine says the menu will continue to represent the character of Pub & Kitchen, but will move toward simple, yet refined pub fare, with a burger from meat ground in-house and house-made sausages.

Designer Ian Chapin, who worked on the owners' new Fitler Dining Room, will goose up the lighting, refinish floors, and sub furniture and more.
