“With Chef Griffey by my side, we have managed to make many fantastic things happen in the food world of Dayton, Ohio, and we are both pretty pleased about that,” Kearney wrote. “It has been a pleasure to have him sharing the responsibilities of the kitchen and I so am pleased to have had his support as we made it happen through typical challenges of this industry. … I also know that NCR Country Club and its membership will benefit from his skill set, and for that I am pleased.”
Kearney said Rue Dumaine will highlight some of Griffey’s dishes over the next two weeks. The restaurant, which earlier this year trimmed its hours, is offering dinner service Wednesday through Saturday, Jan. 4-7 and Jan. 11-14.
