B&D Ice House has been a Southtown institution since 1961. In 2010, owner Bruno D’Zanski who worked and kept bar at B&D for 50 years stopped daily operation. Situated across from Southtown’s The Friendly Spot Ice House, Bruno befriended Friendly Spot Bearded Bossman Steve Newman. Their friendship inspired Steve to reimagine B&D Ice with the same soul that it had operated with for the last 50 years.Steve asked brothers Chef Jason Dady and Jake Dady of Jason Dady Restaurant Group to head down to Southtown and brainstorm for the historic Ice House. Steve, Jake and Jason created a Texas themed BBQ and Draft concept worthy of Bruno’s bar.
