It has been a couple days since we closed the restaruant. We have been refering people to our FAQ page so everyone has the same information about why we closed.
Here is a bit more insight...Steve started his new job on Monday and is enjoying a different pace of life. No more getting up before the sun to make wraps, soup, slaws, rice and counting buns to make sure he has enough burgers to feed a hungry crowd. His knees, which have taken a beating from long hours standing at the grill or the dough sheeter, are recovering as he learns the ropes at a new company. Steve will be using his negotiation and collaboration skills to buy ingredients that eventually go in to soups and broths.
Deanne is still around promoting local foods through the FarmerChef project and getting ready for a move to Iowa. Once in Iowa she looks forward to learning about foods that are local to that area so she can expand the FarmerChef project to a broader audience. Steve's parents are still here in Springfield helping to keep the restaurant space looking nice.
We hope the restuarant finds a new owner and will keep you posted once we know more.
