Conscious Table closes

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Mother's Day: Cheery for many, shitty for some.

In that latter category is chef Aaron Retka, who tells us that Conscious Table effectively closed after brunch yesterday.

The simplest way to summarize the news is that it's a financial decision.

Locally, it's a small loss to the sustainability movement in restaurants, where cleanliness, true quality and responsible stewardship was placed above profit margins. (Perhaps to a fault, here.)

Several eateries still carry that torch, like Margarita at PineCreek, Pizzeria Rustica and Adam's Mountain Café, to name a few.

But we can always use more green-mindedness at the table.

If we get any further news prior to press time for this week's paper — I also have a call into founding chef Brent Beavers — I'll update this blog or include notes in my Side Dish column.
