Chef Robert Irvine tried to save The Ship Inn. But The Ship Inn has finally sunk:
Le sigh…. I wish the successors much luck but there are SO many brewery places in the area. Actual fine dining is lacking.
According to the Loop Net listing it is indeed under contract.
The new company going into the grand old colonial gal is called VK Brewing. Veteran owned.
Soooo…time will tell. I hope they honor the past of The Ship Inn. Of course I like others wonder what will happen with all of the memorabilia and historical bits?
Chef Robert Irvine tried to bring a horse to water but hey you can’t make him drink. I won’t miss the now former owner yelling at his employees on the dining room floor at the Ship Inn. Here’s hoping they keep him off of the dining room floor at Duling-Kurtz the other place he and his wife own.
Welcome to the area VK Brewing.
