I have always thought it would be cool to share a behind the scenes look at a restaurant – both in development and in operation. So we created the VOLT blog for both purposes. This blog will act in as a diary – documenting VOLT from its conceptual design, interior renovation, and the challenges and triumphs associated with our opening. The second is an ongoing ledger related to menu development, product selections, product contributors, and technique trial and error.
Restaurant co-owner, Hilda Staples, members of VOLT’s management team and I will all be making editorial contributions.
Currently, we are in the formative stages of menu development and design, and dining room service. Our architect DMS / Perla, has finalized designs for the dining rooms and lounge. We will be starting construction in the next few weeks. Our current anticipated date of opening is early June 2008.
I look forward to sharing the development of VOLT.
