In a statement on the Kitchen at White Water Tavern's Facebook page today, bar food genius Jonathan Wilkins announced that he will be leaving the Tavern in July to "pursue other opportunities." Wilkins' statement in full:

Hey Folks,
I wanted to take a moment and fill you in on some changes coming to the kitchen. In 1 month I will be leaving the White Water Tavern to pursue other opportunities. The past year has been a fantastic experience and I can't begin to thank you all for the support and kindness I have been shown. You'll still be able to chow down at your favorite bar and I'm sure you can look forward to an awesome new cook with an equally awesome new menu. July 12th will be my last day so there is still plenty of time to get your burger or Double Wide fix. If there are any specials that you'd like to see one more time just shoot me a message and I'll do my best to make it happen.

Thanks Very Much,
Jonathan Wilkins

While I'm glad that White Water is planning to continue serving food, it's a sad day for all of us who have come to love Jonathan's food. His attention to quality ingredients and good techniques made White Water as much a destination for great food as it is for great music. We'll keep you updated on what's next for both Wilkins and White Water as we find out more, but for now, we want to wish Jonathan the best of luck. You all have one month to stuff yourselves with as many Huggy Bears, Double Wides, and orders of curry fries as you can.
