I spoke to chef Eli Laidlaw on the phone, and he sounded pretty shaken. While the staff was aware they weren't doing a lot of business during the day, they were not warned of the catastrophic money loss that "forced" the owners to shut down suddenly. Update: Bar manager Amy Sawyer says neither the bar or wait staff were warned about the closing. A previous version stated that some bartenders were given notice.
"We were brought into a meeting, handed in our keys and that was it." Laidlaw will stay through the end of the week to finish the closure.
So now there is a whole restaurant staff suddenly out of jobs. If you have leads on any available jobs, email me email@example.com and I'll pass the info along to Eli and his crew. I'll update this post as I get more info about Nourish's closure.
