UPDATE: We've heard from the chef who walked off the job. See the latest for more information.
Original post follows:
Johnathan Tinker, the chef who'd been slated to open the nation's first ranch-dressing-themed restaurant, Twisted Ranch, walked off the job 20 minutes into the restaurant's first night of soft opening on June 26, as the restaurant's co-owner confirmed to Riverfront Times this morning.
The unexpected departure has pushed back the restaurant's opening. Twisted Ranch had originally announced a June 30 opening date, only to announce on Facebook just a day or two before that the date had changed. Up until this point, no explanation had been given.
