St. John’s Restaurant and Meeting Place chef-owner Daniel Lindley has sold his majority interest to minority partner, Josh Carter, effective immediately.
Chef Lindley began his work at St. John’s Restaurant two weeks before opening in September of 2000. As executive chef, he earned five semi-finalist nominations for Best Chef: Southeast from the James Beard Foundation. Meeting Place, Mr. Lindley’s casual bistro concept neighboring St. John’s Restaurant, opened in 2004.
“I am genuinely proud of what both St. John's Restaurant and Meeting Place have become, proud of the remarkable staff that united and executed this dream, and deeply proud of our city, which continues to grow and flourish around it,” said the chef.
“I look forward to continuing to serve at Alleia Restaurant, and hopefully other capacities in the future,” Mr. Lindley said.
Alleia, his concept, opened in 2009, offers rustic Italian fare and renowned décor. Mr. Lindley said he looks forward to announcing new projects in the near future.
