Joe, Joe, Joe...

Got the news from my buddy Tom: Joe McPherson's second restaurant will be shutting its doors for good this coming Friday. Get your orders in now, while you still can.

I don't know what to say. I don't know any details (I've texted Joe). Will Joe try a third time, or will he go back to life as a food writer, etc.? Whatever happens, I wish him luck. He's a good guy who deserves good fortune.

Feeling bleak.

UPDATE: Joe texted me back, but he says he's been keeping this "under the radar," so I don't feel I'm at liberty to say anything. Don't worry, though: this isn't a tale of woe and betrayal like last time. Nothing at all like that.


  1. Well, this is disappointing.

    Is it going to be shutting its doors at the end of business on Friday? Just trying to figure out if we can get a last visit in...

  2. You might want to head over on Thursday. Not sure what time, on Friday, this is supposed to happen.

  3. Eh, Thursday will be rough. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
