After Hecho, a Bit of Nashville En Dumbo

When Hecho en Dumbo announced it would be leaving the Dumbo General Store for the Bowery, the store's owners weren't entirely sure who would take over the kitchen. But according to DGS's website, they found a replacement last month when David Conn, a Nashville chef who formerly owned Edisto, began turning out a Southern-inflected, comfort food-heavy brunch and lunch menu. Conn will start serving dinner this month.

Incidentally, Conn's arrival brings the city's number of bassoonists turned culinary professionals to two: like the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck's Doug Quint, Conn built a career as a reed player before turning his attentions to more edible pursuits.
