  • Experienced Restaurateur Assembling New Dishes, Atmosphere At Foundry Kitchen And Tavern

    It’s one thing for a restaurant operator to assemble an array of mouth-watering entrees, soups, salads, appetizers, and desserts, but Foundry Kitchen and Tavern owner Christopher Bruno has taken his tasks far beyond the former Stone River Grille’s kitchen walls. He has been involved in every facet of the restaurant’s physical redesign as well. From the deconstruction process that has left the interior sparse and rustic, but at the same time welcoming, to a number of tables and serving surfaces that he and staff members have built or reclaimed, Mr Bruno’s experienced touch can be seen at every turn. The new restaurant's progressive American menu will focus on beef, seafood, and other tavern specialties.


    Hoping to build on what Newtown schools already do well, said Vivek Subramanian and Geetha Rajgopalan, they are pleased to present the Mathnasium concept of learning and enrichment to Newtown and area students.
