La Boucherie owner will miss staff and island customers | Letter to the Editor

While it was not mentioned in the March 13 article about La Boucherie butcher shop and restaurant closing (“La Boucherie to close to walk-in diners”), I’d like to add that as the manager and co-owner of this business, I was extremely grateful and touched by the island patronage of La Boucherie. To those customers: I will miss seeing your faces in the shop, hearing about your culinary adventures and intentions and enjoying your enjoyment of the food we prepared and served.

Also missing from the article was appropriate recognition and thanks to the staff of La Boucherie, most notably chef Dustin and head butcher Lauren, who were integral to realizing its potential. Both will no doubt continue to enjoy successful careers in their fields, but sadly Vashon will no longer reap the benefits.
