NEW OWNERS OF SIMPATICO AND WILLIE RAE’S

willieraeIT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR!
Yes, it is true – Simpatico and Willie Rae’s have new owners. Micah and Katie  Pfister bring new energy and excitement to the Square with their culinary expertise. Along with Sterling Wharton, who brings his business acumen, the three (Sterling is Katie’s dad) have some wonderful ideas for changes to Simpatico’s menu and appearance.   Micah is a master chef, having graduated from Sullivan Culinary School and Katie is a Pastry Chef, who graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. Sterling comes from the technology side of business.
To begin the changes, the three will move the favorite Simpatico menu items to Willie Rae’s menu and bring new menu ideas to Simpatico.
Micah, who has worked at the Dove Tail in New York, Empire State South and Spago, in Beaver Creek, CO, prefers to create everything house-made – that includes sauces, sausages and more.  He plans on using only local seasonal produce and products in creating menu items at Simpatico, and will be able to shop right out the front door at the Marietta Farmers Market.  The rest of the story is on page 3 of the February Marietta/Powder Springs paper at www.brightsidenews.com/marpsnews.html.
