On The Square: The Community That Made A Restaurant

On The Square: The Community That Made A Restaurant


From the writers and chefs:

"Stephen and I returned to my hometown, Tarboro, after the harrowing attacks of September 11th left us without jobs when Windows on the World fell.

Almost one year later, on October 14 th , 2002, we purchased On The Square with the idea that we would give it a year, for my dad’s sake, and then continue on with our lives.

Here we were, newly married, trying to create a gourmet restaurant in a town with a population of 11,000, and unemployment at the highest rate for any county in the state. Even we were doubtful it would work.

But, it was exactly what we needed at the time, and when you have what you need, you make it work.

Now, twenty-one years later, we want to celebrate and share our story with you; with our friends that supported us, with our staff that made it happen, and with our families that were with us every step of the way.

Join us in celebrating On The Square’s Twenty-First anniversary with our limited edition cookbook."
