Brookfield chef Chris Bruno, formerly of Fiddler’s Restaurant and Chris's American Restaurant, knows a thing or two about running a successful upscale eatery. First, of course, is the food. Bruno’s specialty is “progressive” or “creative” American cuisine, which combines traditional local favorites with exotic flavors like wasabi, wild mushrooms, tuna carpaccio, and duck liver paté. Whatever the fare, the food must fit the tastes of the community. “There’s a higher level of sophistication among restaurant patrons here in the Northeast than in other parts of the country,” Bruno has said of his clientele.
Along with its food, a restaurant’s décor needs to stay fresh and interesting to keep up with modern sensibilities. When Bruno started renovating Chris's American Restaurant back in 2003, he knew he needed an exciting, cosmopolitan space to match his cuisine. “Customers today want to feel hip,” Bruno stated in a recent interview, “and savvy restaurateurs are appealing to an increasingly image-conscious culture.”
Chris's American Restaurant (Fiddler's Restaurant in Brookfield, CT) delivered progressive American food enlivened by international and domestic regional influences to customers throughout the Brookfield, Connecticut, area.
