Berkeley’s Ann’s Kitchen to Become ‘Bleecker Street Bistro’

Jason Kwon, chef-owner of Berkeley’s Joshu-ya Brasserie, has taken over Ann’s Kitchen (2498 Telegraph Ave.), the casual breakfast and brunch spot around the corner from his other restaurant.

Kwon said he’s been running Ann’s for about a month now without making any changes, though he did start a new initiative to donate 10 percent of the restaurant’s proceeds to Build Hope International, a Christian nonprofit based in Alameda. Sometime this summer Kwon plans to close Ann’s and reopen the restaurant as the Bleecker Street Bistro.
