Just got word this morning that Chez Bryce, the French-infused restaurant on Davis Islands, will close its doors on July 17th. Chef Bryce will continue on with a hopefully more recession-proof catering business, but I’m hoping his grilled Caesar salad remains on that menu. The email sent this morning from Bryce Whittlesey, chef and owner:
We regret to inform you that Chez Bryce will be closing its doors on Sunday, June 18th. We are deeply saddened by this, but due to the recession and current economy, we are unable to continue to operate. Although this is a very difficult time, we want you to know that we are deeply grateful for all of your support over the past three years. We appreciate you believing in our restaurant and for giving us the opportunity to provide you with what we hope were very memorable dining experiences – not only at Chez Bryce but in your homes as well.
We are planning a farewell dinner on Saturday night, June 17th and hope that you will be able to join us to say goodbye. We are planning to send an e-mail with details, however, please feel free to call the restaurant for further information and reservations.
On a more positive note, Chef Bryce will continue to offer his catering services and can be reached at 813-368-1256 or at email@example.com. Bryce looks forward to staying in touch with all of you and continuing to create the same dining experiences in the privacy of your own homes.
We thank each and every one of you for allowing us to share our passion for food, wine and friends with you……..all of the memorable moments will not be soon forgotten.
The Chez Bryce Team
