Who Are We?
Pickled Owl opened its doors on August 3rd, 2015. Evan and I (Brynn) have strong roots in Sullivan County. Evan, a Liberty native, and I, born and raised in Hurleyville, both have large families in the area. After we married in 2008, we knew we wanted to stay close to family and bought our first home in Hurleyville.
Opening a restaurant was never a question of if, but a question of when. Evan, a Culinary Institute of America graduate, has been in the kitchen since he was 15-years-old where he started as a dishwasher and bus boy. His passion for cooking took ahold of him and he developed and honed his skills throughout his teenage years and into his young adulthood. He knew he wanted to one day open his own place where he could develop an innovative menu and have fun introducing his customers to new food choices and craft beer.
We talked often of the style of restaurant we wanted and how he would be able to inspire people to think outside of the box when it came to dining out. A gastropub style restaurant seemed to be the natural choice. The opportunity to open a gastropub in Hurleyville was one we could not pass up!
Though we are only at the beginning of our journey, it has been incredibly rewarding thus far seeing satisfied customers indulging in culinary creations they may otherwise not have tried and experimenting with the pairing of craft beers and their food choices. It has become a place for our two young daughters to learn the value of good company, good food, and hard work!
