Top Chef Canada’s Gabriell Cruz is BruDa’s new chef
BruDa, the Little Italy restaurant that took over from Negroni/Carpano, has a new chef: Gabriell Cruz, formerly the sous chef at Quatrefoil. Cruz made it to episode six of Top Chef Canada last season, but was eliminated in a quickfire challenge for an overambitious brown butter and bread soup. Expect dishes like tea-cured B.C. salmon and unbaked cheesecake with star anise ice cream on the revamped menu.
