Bittersweet will take a summer break starting Sunday
Bittersweet will take a summer break.
Unexpected issues with the build-out pushed back their already-delayed opening until the very last day of 2010. And now the need for more repairs will force the eatery to take a short break next week.
"The grease trap was installed wrong," Olav explains. To fix it, a crew will have to shut off the water for a few days, which will make it impossible to keep the restaurant open. So the Petersons are closing on Sunday for ten days -- days Olav chose because he expected the place to be slow over the July 4th holiday, anyway.
When Bittersweet is up and running again, though, Olav plans to make some tweaks to his summer menu, rolling more produce from the garden outside the restaurant onto the board.
Bittersweet will be closed from July 3 until July 12.
