Reaction to closure of Owner’s Wife in downtown Indy

Jun 2nd, 2017 | by Eat Drink Indy | News, Restaurants

The Indianapolis restaurant community reacted today to the news of The Owner’s Wife closing in downtown Indianapolis. Chef Jonathan Brooks of Milktooth, who served as consulting chef for the restaurant, released a statement:

“I’m saddened to hear the news about The Owner’s Wife closing,” he said. “I had such a great time consulting on the menu and working with Ted and Shannon again. I wish it had made sense for me to be more deeply involved in the project. I think there were a lot of cool ideas at play that I would have loved to see succeed for Indianapolis. Of course, Ted and crew will hit the ground running, and I’m excited to see the changes they’re making at Brugge.”

Chef Neal Brown, of Stella, Libertine and Pizzology, noted the challenges facing chefs and restaurateurs in the current Indianapolis restaurant climate:

“It’s a terrible shame to see so many of my friends and colleagues work so hard, and invest so much of themselves into something and not succeed,” he said. “It serves as a reminder to me how important it is that we support and nurture our local arts and entertainment culture.”
