Looks great. Glad to know where you landed; Pat and I went to the Coterie Room last weekend and thought we'd see you there. I'm sure that's a story for another day/place.
It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's dissapointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathize with her, but thinks that he should warn her
That the Thirld World is just around the corner

Indeed, I've been at Vios since October. No story, Coterie Room is good folks doing delicious food. It was just a combination of realizing their modernist approach was too much of a departure from what I ultimately wanted to do, and the opportunity at Vios both being too good to pass up and more in line with cooking that hews to tradition.

If I were younger, I would have liked to stay, especially since I'm a nerd too and genuinely enjoyed working with them. It's alright though, big plans in the works. First is Greek Easter, next is brunch, and more still after that.

Anyway, now I'm at a place where you can bring your kids! You can throw them a souvlaki over the gate while they play. :lol:

Just please tell me that you're not planning some Thai/Greek fusion restaurant! :lol:

Hehehe, definitely not.

It's wanting to see how to make a traditional cuisine taste just as good or better than "back home" but without the benefit of terroir, as well as being involved with expansion plans and helping to shift a restaurant's identity while keeping to tradition. And I love the food and have ownership support for culinary and business interests we both share. It makes the most sense for me to be here.

But who knows, maybe a pop-up in the future, though not anytime in the next 12 months. :P
