Yea, it's really gone downhill since Chef Mike left!! Rumor has it the co-owner was crazy, paid all her bills but didn't pay him. Big mistake...you got to pay the Chef. I never see anybody in there anymore. I think it will be closed soon. That lady has no idea on how to run a business or keep employees or customers!

Mrs Deschain and I ate dinner there last week and it was excellent. I had the tuba and she had the stuffed pork chop. Service was a tad slow but we weren't in a hurry. Appetizer, Mains, dessert and drinks was $65. I think it was reasonable, and it was definitely delicious. We're going back this week.

Chef Mike was a very sad excuse of a chef. He coudn't train anybody, and treated his staff really poorly. Everybody in the Culinary world, knows that he is one of the Chefs to watch out for. He has a lot of his customers fooled.

The restaurant itself was doomed for the start. They have really bad management; they where very disorganized, and they are extremely lacking in kitchen staff.

Whoever this is whatever "Chef" Mike told you, isn't the whole story. Before you get on topix and make claims be sure you're not getting your story from a disgruntled "chef".

I agree with you ukcatsno1 regarding the co-owner Brenda Dinkins Allen being a crazed lunatic for trying to run a business in the first place. She has no people skills and is irrational and does not know how to treat customers, staff or empoloyees. This woman is clearly motivated by money and nothing else... no scruples... I would never do business with her. She has got a rep as far as Frankfort KY to the border of Texas and it is littered with carcasses of her trying to step on people to get to the top. I heard her las job fired her and that's why she tried to get in the restaurant business... she is washed up as an attorney....What a piece of work! I heard the restaurant is already closed.. did not even make it a year... geeze:>)

You obviously don't know Brenda Allen if that's how you describe her just because you "hear" these things does not mean their true she was fired from her job because she knew how corrupt they were and wanted too stop them.And how can you say she doesn't treat staff and employes right when she always makes sure they get paid first and that she doesn't get a penny of the income without her employes getting paid.And what do you mean by washed up attorney? She owns her own law firm and gets multiple clients a day. And you also said you "heard" the restaurant was closed well clearly you heard false again,its still up and running.So next time you try to talk negatively about somebody on the internet at least know what you are talking about
