A Loving Farewell

A Loving Farewell

July 01, 2016

To everyone who has ever supported our dream:

It is with a heavy heart to write that my wife Heather and I have decided to close our restaurant. This is one of the hardest decisions we have ever made, second only to the day we opened the restaurant almost five years ago. We did not come to this decision lightly and we are extremely sad to have to close our doors.

We have never believed in doing anything unless you could devote your entire self to it. This thought process is what drove us as small business owners, but could also be our downfall. We also believe that hard work, love, and respect for our coworkers is what helps a small business to succeed, and we feel that we were successful in every aspect of this. We constantly strive to set an example for this industry and have stood by our beliefs, no matter how hard it became at times.

Restaurant work is not easy. Quality of life is something that we talk a lot about in this industry. Devoting so much time to others comes at a cost; most often to yourself and those you love. It takes dedication, thick skin and a sense of humor, but we would struggle to find a more rewarding line of work. However, we are choosing the commitment we made to each other for our happiness and our well-being.

The countless people we have met over these last five years – many we are proud to call friends - have helped shape us to become people we are proud to be. We hope that in some small way we helped many of them the same way they helped us.

It would take a small lifetime to thank everyone individually for all of the love and support we have received. To our customers: we can’t thank you enough for letting us take care of you. We loved welcoming you into our home.

To our employees, both past and present: some of the most dedicated, hardworking people we have had the privilege of knowing. You are family and turned this tiny restaurant into a home. We love you and could never have done this without you.

Thank you to our Charleston hospitality industry for continuing to push us everyday and to all the farmers and producers who so lovingly dedicated their lives to making us successful. And last but not least thank you to our families who taught us both the value of hard work and set such high standards for us to try and live up to.

Sunday July 31st will be the last day Two Boroughs Larder is open for business, but Heather and I look forward to the future and everything it holds: new adventures, long walks with Walter and more sleep. Thank you Charleston from the bottom of our hearts. We wouldn’t be here without you and are proud to call this amazing city home.

Josh, Heather + Walter

Someone at the Charleston City Paper loves our house made scrapple breakfast sammy, and we can't say that we blame them! For those of you not quite yet adventurous enough to try this Pennsylvania Dutch treat, give our Nueske's Bacon or the vegetarian Peperonata a chance to start your day off right.

One of our guests loved her trip to Charleston, and our Noodle Bowl so much that she decided to recreate it in her own home! We're happy to have inspired some culinary experimentation and hope you'll be back soon for more ideas!
