It’s with a heavy heart and SO MUCH GRATITUDE that we will be serving our last meal in the dining room of The Lovin’ Oven on January 1st.
What a magnificent 18 years it has been!! My favorite memories will always be a full dining room stopping to sing a rousing round of happy birthday to a red faced guest, The New Years Eves filled with champagne and balloons, Italian Nights with the families, Storytimes with Lolly, warm spring days with the garage door open and the patio filled, Planned Parenthood benefits, school auctions, dressing up for Valentine’s and alllll those brunches! The birthday meals, anniversaries, baby showers, weddings, lunch with friends. Sharing your special times with us meant the most.
The sweet potato biscuits, focaccia, the fresh pressed juice. The fritters, the Huevos, the Avocado BLTs! Summers filled with juicy tomatoes, sweet corn and peaches. All the amazing farmers and producers. Our Chocolate Caramel Tart on TV!
And of course, THE PEOPLE. The magic of this place has been created by SO MANY and it is theirs as much as mine.
Mike, Nikki, Lauren, Meg, Melissa, Joe, Ivy, Anna, Lea, Peter, Carla, Allison, Larissa, Minni, Daniel, Carolyn, Angel, Maia, Lauren, Amy B, Kate, Miranda, Stephen, Jess, Noelle, Laura, Rhi, Emma, Evelyn, Cayden, The Nugents! Maddy, Celeste, Sue Ann, John B, Suzanne, Chad, Ali, Stevie, Hank, Mason, Kevin Slack, Fay, Dawn, Derek, Donte, Chris P and alllll those poor dishwashers.
What a wonderful band of misfit creatures. damn, we’ve had a lot of fun.
And to every young person who came in shy and unsure and left confident and authentic-you are why i do it!
The restaurant business has changed and it’s time to move on. Im going to pause to enjoy my family. I am manifesting a space where i can share a more intimate version of The Oven’s hospitality and yumminess. I can’t wait for what’s next!
To every person who has supported, enjoyed and shared in the Lovin’ Oven i am so grateful. You have given me space to do what i cherish so much…feed people with love.
