After a failed attempt at rebooting Downtown's landmark Franco-kitsch jazz joint, "The Bra" is open once more, this time with a kitchen helmed by a Thomas Keller-trained chef, and a cavernous front of the house stripped down to a Henry Miller-esque back alley look thanks to a rough-edged central bar, and a massive brick wall with a giant hole where thieves recently attempted to break into the adjoining jewelry store, before just giving up on thieving and their relationship by going to Jared.
