View Full Version : Moving on.

I recently put in my notice to leave my current spot. I wasn't unhappy or looking for a new job but one found me anyway. The biggest bummer is that I won't be able to take any of my Amigos along. Most have been with me for three restaurants and Sargento, my ace in the whole, has been along for four. It has been very hard telling this crew of about 10 guys that I am going to be leaving them. They are a tight knit crew and I am comforted by knowing that they will be able to stay together as long as they want.

Anyway - I thought I would post a few pics of where I have been working and where I am going. Gastropub to fancy pants Italian.

Pretty drastic change of scenery but I think I am up to it. Plus, classy digs for the next get together. :cool2:

Damn dude - that's an impressive setup and a whole lot of seating. Best of luck on your new adventure. :thumbsup:

Thanks, that's crazy that you made it in. Glad you liked it. It is a really fun spot.

I'll be totally honest and tell you that I am hesitant to throw the name out there until I am the one saying yes or no to the plates coming out. I'll post in the MPLS recommendation thread once I get moved in. It'll be mid April when I start. I am considering staging around San Fran before I start. Anyone know a good modern Italian place in Chicago? Would definitely be cheaper to get to.

It's always tough to leave a tight crew. But, it looks like you have a great opportunity in front of you. Congrats!

Congrats man, sometimes it's bittersweet to leave a place.
Most times NOT!
Looking forward to an update on the new diggz.

That's a great looking kitchen. Congrats!

If the last picture was of the kitchen you are going to it looks like you are in for a treat! If it is of the place you are leaving I can't wait to see the new kitchen.
