We here at the Simone continue to wish all of you joy, good health, love, and great food and wine! Though the times have been challenging we have been lifted by the support shown to us and it has allowed us to continue to row our little boat, still with only one oar, still kind of upstream, but going still we are. Thanks to all of you. And to our loyal staff that we really consider family.

If you are wanting to continue to be a part of the pay forward “Brown Derby” fund, please call me at the restaurant and I am delighted and thankful to help you with that.

We are looking forward to your company, we hope sooner than not, share with us how you have been and what you are up to!

–Tina and Chip
