Less than a month after coming on with sommelier Paul Ozbirn as a partner and executive chef at Hyde Park staple Vino Vino, Adam Brick and the restaurant/wine bar have parted ways.

“We have not made a decision as to whom will take the kitchen into 2018, but are exploring options and keeping an open mind,” said Ozbirn, who gave no details on the split. “Adam’s incredibly talented and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”

Ozbirn, a longtime veteran of Parkside Projects, and Brick, who left Apis at the end of October, announced in November that they had joined Vino Vino co-founder Kelly Bell as partners and intended to take the restaurant in a new direction, serving food built around classic wine regions from around the world.
Brick, a native Austinite and veteran of esteemed New York City restaurants Daniel, Aureole and Momofuku Ssäm Bar, told the Statesman he has plans to open his own restaurant in late 2018, but is not legally allowed to disclose concept or location yet.
