When I opened my restaurant in 2007, there were very few farmers who understood what we were trying to do to provide as much locally sourced food on our menu as possible. By the end of our 10 year run, I was turning farmers away. I had too much supply.
The demand changed when a new sports and entertainment arena opened just two blocks from our front door. Demand for our style of food decreased, which led to our eventual closing in 2017.
But circumstances change. Who would have predicted COVID-19? I can’t blame circumstances for my demise. I must always be ready to rethink, reimagine and risk again.
Make today count.
