Rumor Mill: Scott Bryan Headed Back To DC?

You may recall that last fall a major chef shuffle led two of Manhattan's brightest culinary talents to 2941 in Falls Church.

The first name to take the helm for a three-month guest chef stint was Scott Bryan, and rumors followed that he might stay in the area when his time was up at 2941. But when last week brought word that he'd taken a job back in NYC as top toque at Lever House, DC restaurant-watchers cried silent tears.

Well, dry your eyes. Sources late last week tipped off Metrocurean that Bryan was already off the Lever House job and possibly headed back to the DC area. The New York Times' Diner's Journal confirms with word from Bryan himself: “I might do something else in Virginia with Rick Adams.”

Adams is the owner of 2941. Stay tuned.
