It took Ryan, his kitchen crew and even neighborhood workers some nine months to transform what had most recently been a storage-unit assembly area and, much earlier, a drugstore, into the restaurant it is now. While the long buildout was worth it, it meant time away from the kitchen, which Ryan says left him feeling rusty when The Plimoth opened in November.
"We forgot how to cook," jokes Ryan. "I could tell you how to work with drywall, but my knife skills were terrible."
Find out if cooking is like riding a bicycle -- once you learn, you never really forget -- when my review of the Plimoth is posted at westword.com tomorrow.
