The end of an era.

Sel Noir as we know it has come to an end. Not for lack of support, or lack of success, or tired minds. But because Sel Noir has always been my vision, and I am someone with many other visions. This is what makes the decision so difficult, because no one is forcing my hand; I could easily spend a lifetime doing this. Sel Noir is my work of art, and art is never finished, only abandoned.

I owe a lot of thanks to a lot of people and incredible clients, but th...ere are two people I could not have done this without. Margaret Sage and Jonathan (J-Sizzle) Randall Smith.

Margaret was my first business partner, and the first person to encourage me and take me seriously as a chef. My style was all over the place, but she a saw a lot of things in me. We started this catering company together, and she taught me more than she will ever know.

Jon has been my sous chef for the last few years. He was the first person I learned to trust in the kitchen. Our discourse is often unintelligibly morbid or sarcastic or spiteful, and yet he's become my best friend and someone I admire very deeply. One of the only reasons I've been able to grow as much as a chef and human being is because of him. We have shared a lot of frustration, and laughter, and frustration, and stress, and frustration, and he's someone I'm proud to know.

The reason I'm ending Sel Noir is because I'm also a musician. It's been a project that fervently vies for my time and attention and I would forever regret not giving it a serious chance. In order to do that, I need to move on from food. I need to raise the stakes, so I have no other options for my livelihood.

"Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.” - Mark Danielewski.

Let's suffer, then. Adieu.

Our next menu is an exercise in concentrating flavors to an extreme. Diluting with concentrated vegetable juices, using charcoal to accent roasted notes, turning juices into glass.

Still working with winter produce, but excited for the new ideas spring will bring.

Stay tuned for May 9th dinner invites.
