i got wind of a bit of news about the JKWB sale and thought you all might be curious....
looks like the former chef of the Gardiner location, Scott Vivian, will be taking it over along with the former owner of Joy Bistro.... Ted.... something long that i couldn't catch. the change should happen in about mid-October. they've negotiated to keep the name of the resto so i suspect that they might continue in the Jamie Kennedy philosophy but that's just my own guess.... but i'm surprised that "the other" Jamie will be going in quite a different direction!
Drummond is going to be leaving the wine bar for the non-profit Good Food Revelation. he'll be taking on the director of programs role! i'd love to see where that takes them, but i'll certainly miss his enthusiasm behind the bar. i really enjoyed some of his last white picks.
