Endings #6: When Your Restaurant Closes, with Chef Chris Jaekle

Episode: 69

So much time and attention are given to a restaurant’s opening: Who’s the chef? How will the menu be different than everything that’s come before it? Who’s designing the space? Will there be craft beer or craft cocktails? We fill reservations books. We rush in to review. We Instagram furiously. But when a restaurant closes? The process is colder, quieter, and far less bombastic.

On today’s show — the last in our six-week series on Endings — chef Chris Jaeckle joins to share the process of closing his Italian-Japanese restaurant, All’onda. Opened to much critical acclaim in New York’s East Village in 2013, he and his partners closed it two-and-a-half years later. How did that process break down, and how did it make Jaeckle feel?
