Over the summer Chef Brennan Calnin embarked on helping to open one of the most anticipated downtown restaurants this year: Townhouse Detroit. We visited the place a number of times and surmised that it was a destination of unapologetic extravagance. We heard from service staff there that the spot was extremely difficult to work for, given the huge layout, elaborate menu and exhausting crowds.
Calnin made the announcement in a Facebook post today, saying his leaving was bittersweet.
Posts Calnin: "I have never worked so hard towards something in my life and I'm incredibly proud of everything we accomplished. I'm sure everyone is wondering where to next? I'm not sure just yet. I'm going to take some well needed time off to rest and get myself to the place I'd like to be both physically and mentally. To all the chefs and cooks out there keep grinding and don't ever lose sight of your goals or aspirations. Thank you."
