"There's no hard feelings, but I'm glad we found out now. He was supposed to have started this week," says owner John McDonald. According to McDonald, Bryan was offered a position, or is anticipating an offer, from a restaurant near Washington, D.C., that may involve ownership. Chefs, prepare your résumés.
