Chef Dan O’Brien has said for some time that he’ll close his weekly Shaw supper club, Seasonal Pantry, when the lease expired. Sadly for fans of his cooking, that time has nearly come. O’Brien announced via Facebook that he’ll close the five year-old restaurant in early April. His next move: Colorado, where he’ll join Breckenridge Distillery.

“Ending the Seasonal Pantry chapter and starting a new one is bittersweet to say the least,” writes O’Brien in the post. “We can’t thank our friends in the community enough for helping us with our success over the years.”

Diners eager to snag a seat at the supper club before April can still make reservations on Seasonal Pantry’s website. We’ll have more on O’Brien’s plans soon.
