The statement released by the Padrós on the ownership change indicates that they're planning to focus on Highland Tap & Burger, their restaurant just a few blocks from Old Major. Brunson is plenty busy himself; in addition to running Old Major and two locations of Masterpiece Deli, he recently consulted on the menu at the new Prospect neighborhood hangout Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, opened by Tavern Hospitality Group. "They're a really cool bunch of guys over there," says Brunson. "It was great working with them."
Brunson says he's working on two new concepts that he'll unveil in June and September of this year, but because they're still in the planning stages, he explains that he can't talk about the locations or details yet.
