Friar Tuck’s will rise again

When I moved here 13 years ago, I’d never been to Nevada City and didn’t know anyone here. Being a waitress, I looked at all of the restaurants here and chose Friar Tuck’s as the best place to work. I’ve been there now for 12 years and as I stood with Greg and Rona and a lot of our staff watching it burn, my heart broke. I have never had a family until this restaurant. I’ve learned so much in the last few days about what’s really important in life. It’s not about a building, but the people in it. We all love each other so much, Greg and Rona are the most wonderful bosses, and this town has been so incredible and supportive of all of us. Thank you all for the love, the tears, the memories and the kinship. I know we will all get through this together, and in a few months Friar Tuck’s will be better than ever.

We love you.

Julie Torte and

all of the Friar Tuck’s Crew
