all good things must come to an end.
For the better part of two years, the process of creating Jack&June has been a labor of love for me, going from an idea and a few menu sketches to a beautiful Railyard restaurant with fantastic kitchen and service staff. There was no way of imagining what the dynamics of the new West Haymarket Expansion would be. They have been challenging to say the least, not to mention unpredictable at most.
It’s become clear that the concept of Jack&June as it was originally designed needs to change to adapt to the demanding Railyard environment. I’ve been given an opportunity to step out of my share of ownership at Jack&June so those changes can happen and so Karen and I can pursue other opportunities that are better aligned with our form of hospitality. This will allow me immediately to redirect my creative energy toward our retooling and redesign of bread&cup.
I am finding that my strengths lie in the creative process and not day-to-day operations. I am grateful for the trust and opportunity to help design and create such a unique space in Lincoln’s growing culinary landscape. It’s time for someone else to build upon what we’ve created and take it to the next level.
