A tipster told us Jane's Sweet Buns had been gutted, and Ravi DeRossi confirms that the boozy-bun shop is no more and the space will become part of beer speakeasy Proletariat, which has been operating in back. Proletariat will open in the expanded space tomorrow (it's still open in back now). We're sorry to see such a cute concept go splat, but it is great news that the larger bar will add a food menu from chef Sother Teague (Booker & Dax, Prime Meats) in a few weeks. The seafood-focused lineup includes beer-steamed mussel buckets, baked clams, house-made pâtés, pretzel-bread sandwiches, and more beer-friendly fare.
