Master Chef to reopen

PULASKI — A 40-year-old piece of Pulaski’s history has proven you can’t keep a good thing down.
Master Chef is slated to reopen soon with “the same friendly faces” and the same menu — with a little kick.
French Miller, who ran Courthouse Square Café in downtown Pulaski several years ago and was a partner in O’dells on the market in Roanoke, recently purchased the business from Ken and Sandy Wyatt.
The Wyatts closed the business June 28 after 10 years of ownership, primarily due to the economy and the ever-increasing cost of supplies.
The restaurant has undergone various changes in ownership, but has kept a similar menu, over its more than three decades of operation.
Miller said only two of the previous employees went to other jobs, so most of the staff will be the same. The only change will be extended hours and special items featured from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, beginning in about a month. Thursday will be Italian Night, Friday will be Barbecue Night and Saturday will be Seafood Night.
Miller said the idea is to give area residents a variety of food to choose from in town so they don’t have to travel to other areas.
He isn’t sure of an opening date yet, but hopes to have the restaurant up and going by the first of next week.
Right now, a lot of cleaning and repainting are going on, he added.
The only other changes will be deliveries to local businesses during breakfast and lunch; Sunday hours; and making the restaurant smoke-free.
Miller said he hopes he won’t lose some of the regular crowd by prohibiting smoking in the restaurant, but “we want to make it a family atmosphere.” An area will be provided outdoors for those who wish to smoke.
Restaurant hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
