I didn't see this statement when it was posted earlier.

A few weeks ago, he was worried about his customer harming his staff more than himself. Now, he's putting his staff out to pasture.

The article indicated that Covid took away his passion, but he got fired back up after the customer wrote the review. Now, he's back to not caring.

Could have used PPP to payout whatever staff he kept on board.

I mean, yeah you could. PPP is not difficult to get, I’m sure he qualified and if it’s used for payroll the debt is forgiven so doesn’t cost anything.

Seems like a dick move on his part. Letting the government take the dime on his employees while he cuts bait and runs. Sure, unemployment is available now, but it isn't forever and I'm not seeing those jobs opening up any time soon in New Orleans.

His action screams pretentious dick - and I hope he reads this and gets pissed.

This guy seems like a prick. He’ll probably fail at the next thing he does too.

Well PPP2 applications just started today so he surely isn’t funded yet and if/when he does get funded he has to run a weekly payroll for his staff. He can’t just cut them a check lump sum. He doesn’t have to open though but it’s kind of a government/taxpayer ripoff and not really used in the spirit of the program.

But I’m aware there are worse offenders of PPP.

He sounds like he is unstable. I really don't understand those who claim to be taking up for the people, yet they have so much misplaced hatred and anger towards anyone who doesn't 100% prioritize issues in the same way they do.

That "we're closing" statement is the worst I've ever read.

Fwiw, he has been giving signs for months and months that he was done.

Looks like it. I kinda feel like going through with the article in a national publication when you plan on closing immediately after is a bit odd.

Yeah he was “over it” back in July

“I am over it. I am checked out. 86 Carrollton Market. We’ll be back in a few weeks or months. Maybe.”

Yeah, I was just speculating as to how the stimulus could hold over his staff. Logically, I think everyone knows no one is being held over by $600 and unemployment. So idk.

He does seem off though. Very knee jerk.

I'm a repeat customer and I always sit at the food bar if possible. I am not a medical professional but I've seen him work and interact with people. Not normal for sure.

I feel bad for his staff. They were really good at their job and really nice too.

Edit: you can read his whole article he wrote for "Food & Wine" here: LINK

re: Carrollton Market - You Don't Like My Politics? I Don't Need Your Business
This is an Ian McNulty article on the closure from yesterday on Nola.com.

LINK

A few quotes:
quote:

Chef/owner Jason Goodenough said the decision wasn’t based on restaurant’s financial condition, but rather his own angst after trying to steer the business through a cascading crisis.

“It’s been so disheartening,” he said. “It just crushes a chef's spirit."


quote:

With a new round of federal stimulus relief to help support the restaurant's staff, he decided it was the time to make the closure official.


quote:

Eventually, though, Goodenough came to the conclusion that he could not bring Carrollton Market back under the terms dictated by the pandemic and he felt the passion he once put into the restaurant deteriorating.


quote:

Goodenough owns the building that Carrollton Market called home, an old shotgun house along a strip of neighborhood businesses. He left open the possibility that he could start a different kind of restaurant here in the future, though he may also rent it or sell it.


A picture of it is posted on the CM Facebook page with the following: "Gone but not out. Stay tuned... #intermission"

Is "Goodenough" his real name or did he change it to that?

Is insufferable self-importance the main prerequisite for being a transplanted chef to New Orleans?

While we are remembering terrible decisions by restaurant owners to jump into politics, please don’t forget the shenanigans of Del Porto, and “burn it down.”

I’m surprised that place is still going. I was hoping she would have caused herself to fold by Labor Day. Unfortunate.
