I'm always in the mood for good news, Ed, so thank you for this news. It's one of our favorite places to dine in the Simpson Bay area so I hope it's just as good as it was before. I'll keep that name change in mind.
I agree, it probably has something to do with the bankruptcy.
It might not just be an issue of paying to keep the original name. If there were outstanding liabilities from SkipJack's, a continuation of the name with many of the same operators involved, might have exposed the new operation to those liabilities. Hence the need for a new name as part of the legal construct. Just a guess on my part.
I will be interested in your observations, Scubaman, after you have had a chance to visit. Hopefully much of the food and ambiance will have been recreated. I am looking forward to enjoying a visit or two when we return in January. It has always been a favourite. I especially miss the tuna carpaccio!!
Seems like going bankrupt then same owners reopen happens a lot on sxm. I don’t know all the details but Having friends that are food vendors Personally I’m not interested in supporting a business that closed owing dozens vendors thousands $ and employees and government not paid then reopens, probably to just do it again. IMO. Lots of great restaurants in the area, I do wish them better luck this time around.
