Tasting Everything

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

We’re getting close to opening. Today and yesterday, the kitchen crew cooked almost everything on the brunch and dinner menus, and the dining room staff tasted all of it so they could learn what it all is. It was a frenzy of eating! We were all in a ‘food coma’ after this hours-long process of tasting all the dishes. But it sure was delicious!

I tasted 3 of the egg dishes — Romero, Glennadene, and Alexander — all of which are named after friends and family of the owners/chefs! I also thought the biscuits and the gravy were wonderful.

web site launch

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Our Big Jones web site is up and running, as of today!

Big thanks to Scott at Dutch Creative for the great design of our web site.

Look for information soon about the restaurant opening — we’re still looking at early April, and the details will be here soon.

I’m in IT so I work on corporate web sites every day… but it’s a lot more exciting to launch your own site for your own business!
