I run a great restaurant, providing customers with great healthy food, and providing my employees with a great place to work.
What goes around... After surviving High School in Wilmington, Mass., I thought I wanted to be a Nurse. Off to Northeastern University I went. Survived 2 years of that, then ran off to Europe for two months with a couple of friends. Met and fell for my partner David in 1980. Most of my jobs until then were in restaurants. We moved to San Francisco, where I eventually became a Systems Administrator for an international law firm (Shearman & Sterling). No more restaurants for Dan ; ). It was time for something new in 1993, so we moved to Ashland, Oregon to purchase Country Willows B&B Inn. Loved it for 10-1/2 years. Then in 2004, it was again time for something new. After selling the Inn, I struggled to redefine the next phase of life. I bought a fixer-upper, did a major remodel and sold it a year later. Learned that that's not for me, so in 2007 I bought Brothers' Restaurant. I've had the restaurant for 5 years and David and I have been together for 32 years. Turns out restaurants are what I really love to do and now I'm doing it. Happy!
While we owned Country Willows B&B Inn, we were featured in Country Inns Magazine and Bon Appetit Magazine, plus several others. Brothres' Restaurant is currently enjoying great reviews from the Locals' Guide and others.
