It's been a hot season for chef moves, but last week's revelation that John Broening will team up, again, with Robert Thompson at Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar was a stunner. The two worked together at La Brasserie Rouge, a wonderful French bistro that closed almost as soon as it opened (but not before it picked up a Best New Restaurant award in the Best of Denver). Now they plan to create a bistro for the twenty-first century at Le Grand.

And some diners can't wait. Says TheJeff:
Wonderful news. Brasserie Rouge: part deux with some lighter, healthier fare? I'm there!
Le Grand has been pretty decent since they opened, but I was more likely to stop in for oysters and drinks than anything else. Under Broening's command, it'll be a dining destination.
