Josh Silvers at the former Three Squares

Rumors have been flying for months about Napa chef Darren McRonald taking over the now-shuttered Three Squares (formerly the much-lauded Syrah) in Santa Rosa.

Until yesterday, owner Josh Silvers has been tight-lipped about the changeover, but an ABC “change of ownership” sign went up this week under the business name The Pullman Kitchen.

Silvers now confirms the potential owner is McRonalds but says nothing has been finalized. McRonald has been a fixture in several of Napa chef Cindy Pawlcyn’s restaurants including St. Helena’s Wood Grill and Bar (formerly Brassica) and Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen, along with the now-shuttered West County Grill in Sebastopol and Chez Panisse in Berkeley.

  1. Darren McRonald is a fantastic chef, really looking forward to his new venture!

  2. Heather, In another story about this spot, it mentioned that McRonald worked in New York. Last month, a grilled cheese spot in East Midtown Manhattan opened. It’s called… Pullman Kitchen. Are they related? Do you think it will be the same type of place? Inquiring minds NEED to know!

  3. While I will miss Syrah, and the followers, I wish them good luck and look forward to more good food in Sonoma County and Santa Rosa…bring it on!
