MC Slim JB chimed in saying that Bissonnette's latest is looking like a breakfast and lunch operation, and First notes that it may occupy the Columbus Cafe space. "I also believe Krista Kranyak of Ten Tables is planning a burger bar for the Bon Savor space," wrote First. Another rumor involves Michael Schlow, executive chef and owner of Radius and Via Matta who has appeared on Top Chef Masters and who is allegedly planning to open a diner where Burtons in the Fenway closed earlier this fall.
