Tim Wiechmann, flying devotedly under the radar at T.W. Food in Huron Village, will open a German-Austrian-Northern Italian-inspired restaurant in Union Square. (Is Union Square the new Kendall Square? Possibly.) Chowder has it that chef Wiechmann's new place will be called Bronwyn, after his wife, who graciously handles front-of-house duties at T.W.
This space will be more casual than T.W., and bigger, too. Wiechmann will take over Ronnarong Thai Tapas's digs at 255 Washington Street; Ronnarong, as we lamented a few days ago, is done. But our mourning is short-lived: After all, at Bronwyn, we'll feast upon a sausage-tasting menu and sip beer in an outdoor beer garden.
Chowder says the opening will happen this fall. Wiechmann is possessed of an exacting eye for detail, and he's not particularly into the "scene," so we expect that he will stay true to his timeline.
In the meantime, we'll content ourselves with his tobacco-flavored ice cream in Cambridge.
