Big changes are afoot at Butcher & the Boar. This morning, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine reported that executive chef and part-owner Jack Riebel had left the critically acclaimed, foodie-favorite restaurant. We reached Riebel, who is currently on vacation in Charleston, to discuss what the news means for him.
"It was time for something new," Riebel explained. His remaining partners bought him out in an amicable parting of ways. He will continue to work on consulting projects, including the revamp of the old Joe's Garage restaurant. That project has changed from the original concept, and Riebel was reticent to discuss the details. "We've always wanted it to be an oyster bar," he said. Beyond that, we know that both the name "Triton" and chef David Yusefzadeh have dropped off the project.
