Saunders Will Not Be Opening Pearl, In Season's Revamp

Photo: Trip Advisor

After much anticipation for Don Saunder's new restaurant concept, Pearl—which was slated to open this fall as the revamp of Saunders' restaurant In Season—Saunders (who is also the chef and owner of The Kenwood) has announced that Pearl will not be opening as planned.

On the In Season website, Saunders writes, "After much consideration on how this new venture would affect my life, both professionally and personally, I have decided not to move forward with the reopening. I am blessed to have two things I want to focus my attention on—The Kenwood Restaurant and a wonderful family!"

Here's Saunders' full note:

"As many of you know, In Season has closed for the summer. Our plan was to reopen in the Fall with a new, more "fine dining" concept. After much consideration on how this new venture would affect my life, both professionally and personally, I have decided not to move forward with the reopening. I am blessed to have two things I want to focus my attention on—The Kenwood Restaurant and a wonderful family!

For those of you looking forward to the reopening, I can understand the disappointment. I would encourage you to check out The Kenwood, where we offer much of what In Season offered and more—great service, seasonally changing menu, etc...and we offer breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.

Thank you all for the incredible support you showed to In Season. We had an absolute blast while we were there!"
