After what was likely a rough 24 hours or so for Brian Metzger, he sent out a press release this afternoon announcing that the Abbey will be open tonight:
After an unexpected interruption to our regular service, we are thrilled to announce that we are OPEN today as of 4 p.m. for regular hours. My family, staff and I would like to thank everyone for your support and encouraging comments, texts, calls, posts and emails. We are a local, family-owned and family-friendly business that works very hard each and every day to offer fun, fresh, and seasonal food together with excellent service. But we made an error and are working to correct it. The Abbey is a restaurant I built for my family and for our community; in fact, I named it after my daughter, Abby, and the success of each of our restaurants is of the utmost importance to me. As always, I’m grateful to our incredible team of dedicated staff who have been understanding and are ready to serve up outstanding food with exceptional service. So please, come join us tonight to experience our new and incredible menu – we’re still taking reservations for this weekend, including Mothers Day brunch and dinner. Thank you Tucson, and thank you Southern Arizona!
