Price continued, “It was a dream of ours to create and open our own restaurant concept and we will always appreciate the support and opportunity we have been given, and are very proud of what the team has created and achieved at table 9 by nick and scott. We feel the time is right to take on a new challenge and we are excited about the future. That said, we are not moving on quite yet. We will be operating as usual until December 31, 2013.”

We have had a remarkable four years with Nick and Scott and we look forward to revealing the new table 9 team,” Lazarus adds.
