Hello To All My Friends and Guests,
I wanted to share with you how honored I have been to spend the last four years here at 4th & Swift, which makes it so difficult to share with you that I will be leaving after the New Year. I have been offered a truly wonderful opportunity to join Jose Andres’ team at ThinkFoodGroup in Washington DC as their Director of Restaurants. I have learned not to leave regret on the table and so it is that I have to embrace this chance in a lifetime.
I don’t quite have the words to tell you how much being a part of 4th & Swift has meant to me both professionally and personally. As a professional, being part of what I consider to be the best restaurant in Atlanta has been the most fulfilling venture of my life. A great part of this joy has been in sharing time at the table with you, the greatest guests a host could ever ask for. Personally, the relationships I have built have been worth twice as much.
So, to Rudy, Paige, Jeb, Chris, Gabe, Maria, Craig, Joe, Bethany, Lillian, Meghan, Sarah, Meg, Marcos, Luis, Irvin, Esau, Kevin, Mike, Tommy, Stephen, John, Nicolle, Erin, Lee, Brian, Louie, Patrick, Keenan, Martin, Chuck, Korey, Patrick, Enrique, Miguel and to all those that have passed through, thank you so very much for a wonderful 4 years.
And lastly to Jay, it has been my great pleasure to have been at your side while we grew this restaurant and it is greater still to call you my friend; you have become like family to me and for that I will always be grateful.
I cannot tell how much I would love to see all of you before I leave, so please stop by, I’d love to share a toast with you.
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
