Exclusive sneak peek: Old Major, opening on February 24

Late last week, I was privy to a personal tour of Old Major, the restaurant that culinary patron saint Justin Brunson, who also owns Masterpiece Deli, is tentatively opening on February 24 in Highland. The space, innovatively designed by Fin Art, a local firm, is still undergoing construction, but Brunson and his formidable crew of heavy hitters, including GM Jonathan Greschler and pastry chef Nadine Donovan, are working around the clock to get their neighborhood restaurant -- surely the most anticipated new dining temple of 2013 -- open by their target date.
