Spuntino will undergo a remodel, expand its menu and pursue a full liquor license

In early February, Spuntino, the Highland restaurant and dessert palace overseen by betrothed couple John Broening (he's the chef) and Yasmin Lozada-Hissom (she's the pastry chef) will close for a week -- maybe two -- to undergo a major makeover, and when it reopens, guests will not only be treated to a fresh interior, but also to an expanded menu and, if all goes according to plan, a beverage program that include cocktails, wine and beer.
